Glumetza Review
| Havard
Although I have taken metformin in the past I had not taken the long acting form called Glumetza. I immediately felt better with lower than average Blood Glucose levels throughout the day. It was amazing but, I did experience some side effects. Weakness, muscle aches, and nausea. These symptoms became worse as time went forward. I eventually did stop taking it. and although it took time I did start to feel better in myself.. My blood Glucose did rise again slightly after stopping it.

PCOS glumetza
| Cellana
I was diagnosed with PCOS back in 2006. Clomid, Femara, glucophage, none of these helped me get pregnant. Then I had a diagnostic lap done in fall of 2010, with a salpingogram where they shoot blue dye through your fallopian tubes. I was on avandia at the time, before they took it off the market. I had one cycle after my surgery, and the next one I was pregnant. With that pregnancy I took prometrium pills because I started spotting. That baby was born in 2011 healthy and hearty. I went on glumetza 10 months later since I can't tolerate glucophage and avandia wasn't available. I was also put on a dose of provera because my cycle had stopped. Had a cycle, a month later I was pregnant! I was definitely surprised because it had taken 7 years to get successfully pregnant before. I again started spotting with that pregnancy, and again took prometrium pills and ended up with another healthy baby in the spring of 2013.
