Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have taken metformin on and off for several years but never for long periods of time, recently I took it for 3 months consistently, i HEARD REPORTS THAT SOME PEOPLE WERE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THEIR MEMORY AFTER TAKING METFORMIN. i HAVE ADHD SO MY MEMORY IS POOR TO BEGIN WITH. BUT RECENTLY i NOTICED A STEEP DECLINE AFTER HEARING THAT METFORMIN COULD CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. COULD IT JUST BE THE POWER OF SUGGESTION?
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have only been on the drugs for 9 days.
Have noticed the symptoms have increased in frequency since the beginning.
While I know you are supposed to avoid alcohol, I had a cocktail and a glass of wine with dinner last night and felt intoxicated (i.e., clumsiness in walking, very tired). Those symptoms wore off and I am fine today.
From this study (2 months ago):
Misdiagnosed as TB and treated with isoniazid for a month. Now stopped isoniazid. Radiologist diagnosed problem as early small airway obstruction. Now there is feet swelling (it was there before also) and eyes are getting red very often.
