Nightmares with 150mcg of Levothyroxine
I was told to take it on an empty stomach, so I have been taking it in the morning as soon as I wake up, and I don't have anything to eat or drink (except water) for an hour and a half after I take it. If your hypo symptoms are getting better, keep on the dosage...the nightmares will ease out.

Metformin and Aleve
I was taking two pills a day and had to stop because I was constantly hungry. Maybe you nee to cut back to one.
Stephanie  |  August 23, 2014
I have been taking Metformin for about 4 yrs now, and just the thought of swallowing the pill makes me wanna gag. I hate the taste of it on my tongue. I also take it while I eat... at least before my last bite, so that I know that it will go down. Another thing I noticed is, when I forget to take it for a day, I get gassy when I start it again. I thought it was just me.

There is a time release Metformin which helped me with some reactions. Dr. almost didn't mention it though. Tammy

I have the runs all day. If I bend down 2 tie my shoe, underwear change. My stomach is upset all the time. I'm afraid to pass gas, I might shard myself.
Tee  |  June 17, 2014
My doctor prescribed 1000 mg Metformin twice a day. I took just the first evening and second day morning and evening. I had a total throw up the whole evening dinner and little lunch grapefruit. I stopped taking that. I just went back to my old pill Glyb/Metformin 2.5/500. I watch what I eat now in order to take just half of it once daily. If I have a big dinner, I had to take the whole pill. I try to eat less meats and more vegetables. My sis just warned me on the long taking Metformin

I am light headed on the Metformin too. Just started it a couple of weeks ago.

Metformin & Bad Breath
People with Chronic halitosis have no idea of how bad it is, when it is “on” or “off” and when it is really acutely tragic. Once the source is identified, a reasonable person will take every necessary action they know to do to remedy it or reduce it to a bearable level by all means necessary. I am a reasonable man, but unfortunately, i could not solve a problem i don't know how to fix.
I had suffered with it for over 5 years (correlating to my time on Metformin) and never knew the height, dept

Can levothyroxine cause diarrhea
All the brands..the 50mcg pilsl are the "purist" version of the levothyroxin medicine.
April 15, 2014
The reason you didn't get diarrhea with the 50 mcg table is because it doesn't have a lot of fillers and other stuff like sugar free sweeteners ,which by the way, can does cause diarrhea.
Muffin  |  April 15, 2014
levothyroxine has mannitol in it which is a type of sugar free sweeter. I have the same reaction to it and am switching to another brand.

Pain and Levothyroxine
My Aunt and I have been on levothyroxine for 4 years and both of us had aqquired constant back pain.. It was so severe for me that they did a MRI on me and couldn't find why the pain.. I recently changed from Levothyroine to Nature Thyroid and I have not had any pain since.. I did not connect the two. My Aunt went off of levothyroxine for a couple months and she did not have any back pain. When she went back on levothyroxine her back pain returned but we still did not connect the two. My Aunt

metformin and stomach problems
I've been taking Metformin for 3 years. I take a 1000mg pill twice a day. I have never had any issues. I'd rather take Metformin than insulin injections for sure. Take Metformin just after eating a meal. I take mine after breakfast and dinner.
Rogio  |  January 10, 2015
Metformin gave me mild stomach cramps taking 4 pills at once. My doctor advised me to space them out during the day which helped. Oddly, after a few years, the cramping came back more severe, and I was taken off it (not knowing the consequences had I continued). The real question is: Insulin is one of the few drugs pregnant women CAN take, so it must be innocuous. Yet, why do doctors fool around with all this other stuff? Metformin and Actos never seemed to do anything for me, a Type II.
LearyMan  |  December 23, 2014
You are supposed to take Metformin with food it does nothing but cause stomach issues if you don't.
Scott  |  November 18, 2014
i take metformin also.i have these weird like hunger pains to the point where im in severe pain i have looked up everything my thyroid and other stuff i just dont know what to do i hurt so bad
Nancy Mosley  |  September 22, 2014
I had the exact same problem - my consultant advised me to take 1500 metformin at bedtime which worked brilliant I don't suffer in the day anymore!! Best advise find a brilliant endocrine professor!! After five wrong diagnosis from different doctors I found a brilliant endocrine specialist he is a researcher and he has patients from all over uk! I have other endocrine problems thyroid etc and if it wasn't for him I'd have been palmed off with painkillers by other doctors that were clearly not

I know the feeling. It gave me lactic acidosis. I am trying to be compensated by the doctors who prescribed it without considering that I had chf and kidney damage. I was t Ken off the drug but two weeks later I am still dealing the gas, bloating. A gastroenterology is who studies the digestive tract
