Discussions that mention janumet

Diabetes board


I was very hungry on Metformin ............in fact starving like mad on it......after 3 months it never went away or the gastric distress......so I am now on Janumet and it agrees with me great and NO HUNGER.

Hope this helps........... it was a problem...........and blood sugar was normal.

I have been on Janumet now for 19 days...............no hunger, no upset stomach.........I feel great.......I take it twice a day with meals.......I am taking the 50/500..

On the Metformin I was always starving..............I mean starving and the lower GI symptoms were always a problem for me.........they lessened but were still there.......I have had none of that with Janumet.......I actually have very little appetite on Janumet.......

The cost would be an issue but my insurance pays for it except 25.00. I think it runs about 180 a month......

Let us know what your Doctor says......... Oleander
Terri,

I just wanted to give you one more post...........

I am still doing great on the Janumet.........I feel completely different on it as compared to the Metformin ER tabs..........

Now that I have been on the Janumet almost a month I can see I feel better, no hunger in fact I have very little appetite........also my sweet and carb craving is gone which is awesome.........I have also lost 4 pounds without trying. Still no gas or diarrhea........Also on the Met food tasted weird to me and that is gone....... Seems like my energy is up and I am also sleeping better. I had some trouble with hot flashes on the Met ER......kept me awake at night....but those are gone now......

Okay.....sounds like I am doing a commercial for this med........I was so against taking it............ but now I am glad......

It is worth a try if the Met is still upsetting your stomach or causing hunger....... Good luck and Happy Holidays.

hi i was just reading the responce you got from Oleander. about the janumet instead of metformin. i am on metformin and have the uncontrolable hunger for sweets i thought it was strange because sweets weren't my problem it was pasta and rice. i also have night sweats and trouble sleeping. i'm going to ask to change my meds. i have type2 . so this could work for me. mabey this would work for you too.

good luck
