  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Experiencing severe night sweats, could this be caused through the medication? Sleeping in summer pyjamas in mid winter and having to change two to three times a night.

    I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic late 2010 and started onn Medformin 250 mg twice a day. very strange that my blood sugars were normal afdter 1 week on the meds and continued to be normal even after having a none fasting blood sugar and A1C done, which were all normal as well.

    Recently I had kidney stones from hell and was rushed to the hospital after being on Medformin for 6 Months.

    Being in the pharmaceutcal field I am convinced that Medformin causes Kidney Stones. Drug companies do not report all side affects from clinical trials to the FDA, this I can tell you they use the data that is good for them to get their dug approved. I am sure that the numbers are higher for people developing kidney stones from Medformin.

    I have been on Metformin 250mg twice daily for about 7 months. My first ever kidney stone event occured at 5 months with a second event at 7 months. Metformin was the replacement for Avandia which I had taken for years without incident. I am 68 years old.

    I am seventy years old and in pretty good health, I am borderline type two diabetic. My doctor prescribed Metphormin and within a week I was passing multiple small kidney stones and after about a week , still passing stones, then I quit for a couple of weeks and the stones subsided, then I started taking the drug again and the stones started back up again, now I have had a history of stones in the past but nothing as frequent as this. I started taking 2000 mg. of Calcium each day and haven't been bothered with stones in several years until I started taking Metphormin. This is the only Generic drug that I know of for non insulin dependent diabetes. I may try it again for another test. I have decided that my health is my reasonability with loosing weight, diet and exercise.
