  • How to deal with low blood pressure caused by metformin
    (Asked by a 75 year old man who has Low Blood Pressure, and takes Metformin)
    I was on Accupril 5 mg for more than 10 years with little or no side effects. I was diagnosed with early Type 2 diabetes and the doctor prescribed Metformin 500 mg 2 tablets a day. After about 3 months, the blood pressure was too low 88 Sistolic 45 diastolic and suffered syncope.

    I reduced Accupril until I am completely off Accupril. Still the BP was too low and I then reduced Metformin to one tab a day. The BP came back and gradually became too high , i.e., 150/92. I have to put Accupril back on at 5/2 mg then 5/4 mg then finally at 5/8 mg. This seems to be optimal but the Blood Sugar is at just above 100, sometimes 106. I wish to increase Metformin back to 2 a day but afraid Bp will become too low.

    Any input would be appreciated.

  • I use levothroxine can i develop overactive bladder with continued use? (4 answers)
    (Asked by a 77 year old woman who has Frequent Or Urgent Urination, and takes Levothyroxine Sodium)
    I seeing A new doctor about 5 years ago. The drug I had been using before was from an animal source. New doctor prescribes Levothyroxine and I began taking it as prescribed and gradually the frequency and volume of urine increased until I would get up from sleep in the middle of my sleep cycle to urinate until once I urinated a large volume and returned to bed, the urge was still urgent and I urinated again, same large volume and urgency. When I asked my doctor if I could go back to my original normal thyroid medicine, and he seemed very offended, citing his fourteen years spent in school to become a doctor and he would not change it because of some "2 lines on the internet" My daughter knew about my misery,researched and found a site that stated continued people who use Levothyroxine will cause overactive bladder. I have gone to the site but cannot find a concise statement there. Otherwise, I like this doctor. I was shocked and dumbstruck. I went to a very thorough urologist. e was patient and told me that it worked for most people but he had a few patients that it did not help. He is affiliated with the same practice as my primary care physician. I would like some "official" statement that will convince him that this is true. Otherwise, it will be necessary for me to find another doctor who does believe his/her patient.

  • Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
    (Posted by a 58 year old woman who has Hair Loss, and takes Metformin Hydrochloride)
    I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.

  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    (Posted by a 59 year old man who has Anaemia Vitamin B12 Deficiency, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Cholangiocarcinoma (liver Cancer), and takes Diovan, Atenolol, Metformin, Victoza)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • Olfactory issues due to metformin use
    (Posted by a 33 year old woman who has Infertility, and takes Metformin)
    I've found that the metformin does not smell especially bad, but when I first started taking it, I could smell something horrible - to the point where I pulled apart my cupboards and fridge, fully expecting to find some maggot-riddled rotting meat. Eventually I realized I was smelling normal smells as hideous. I was on metformin 1/2 pill twice daily for a month, then a full pill twice daily. After about a month of that, I went off metformin for a week, being out of town without my prescription. When I resumed, that night I thought my husband had hideous breath. After we both brushed our teeth, nothing has changed. I recognized the rotting meat smell from my previous experience, and this is when I decided to cross reference metformin and olfactory issues.
