Re: Crestor And Metformin?!
I am taking Metformin (Glucophage) I am a type 2 diabetic and it works well for me, the only nasty side effect is Diarrea, and I had been on metformin for 8 years now and still the runs... I have tried a couple of other kinds for my diabetes but this seems to be the trick, when I first started it, the very first month I lost 50lbs and that entire year I lost 188lbs...WOW I know, but since I can't seem to loose the weight I need to loose another 100 now...BUT I was taking Lopid and Metformin at the same time for my tri's and I had to quit, the heart palpations were horrible, and severe chest pains, I am waiting for the doc to retest my cholesterol to see if I need future meds. Mixing meds are SO DANGEROUS and what in the hell does the doctors know???They don't take a mixture of drugs, your best information will come from a well educated Pharmacist...GOOD Luck
