Although invokana does keep my sugar levels down, the side effects out way the benefits.
- Alevert d-12 long term side effects
I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.
