the dizzyness and brain fog is due to detox. Your body is full of yeast (we all have yeast, but because of the foods we eat and other things, the bad yeast overtakes the good yeast). So the probiotic chews up the bad yeast and it has to get out of the body some way. If you do not drink enough water, it'll come out different ways. rashes, brain fog, etc... Keep taking them, because every body should take at least one a day!

If I stop taking probiotics I crave sweets really bad. I have been on Probiotics for several years and have started having a wet discharge not sure if it is because of Probiotics.

When I started to take Probiotics I became dizzy and had brain fog. Possibly, I should switch brands. I am debating on continuing or stopping. I have stopped for a few days, and I do feel better. I have noticed that my desire for sugar is less with the Probiotics that I had been taking. Possibly, it will take time for my body to adjust.

I have used Schiffs Digestive Enzyme and also Trunature Digestive Probiotic, and both brands have totally controlled my symptoms EXCEPT for the rare times that I have been put on a course of antibiotics. I have not had any bad side effects whatsoever, and I wonder if taking probiotics when my LS first appeared would have prevented the destruction that the LS caused. It's sad that I never knew the positive benefits of the probiotics before the LS destroyed so much tissue, but I'm thankful for my

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.

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.

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

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.

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
