Is Benadryl Safe With Metformin

Do Allergy Medications And Diabetes Medications Interact?

Do Allergy Medications And Diabetes Medications Interact?

I heard people with diabetes need to be careful with allergy medications. Are there allergy medications I cannot take with my diabetes medication? Zyrtec® (cetirizine), Claritin® (loratadine), Allegra® (fexofenadine), and Benadryl® (diphenhydramine) are all allergy medications that should not affect your blood sugar when used by themselves. However, these antihistamines are often paired with pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine. Pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine are both decongestants. These two medications can cause an increase in blood sugar when taken with diabetes medication and should be avoided, if possible, in people with diabetes. Be sure to read labels on cold and allergy medications, and be careful when the letter D is added to a medication name, such as Zyrtec-D or Claritin-D. This means that it contains pseudoephedrine.

I know this sounds like a crazy thread, but I'm going to put this out there to all of you in hopes that someone else may have experienced this too.. I survived the first week on metformin. It was TOUGH as I had non stop nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, but I got through it and all my GI symptoms have disappeared. But now, I am experiencing EXTREME itching. I don't have hives, but the itching is 24/7 and it is intense. It is not just the dry skin of winter either. This is the kind of itching that causes you to scratch until you bleed.... I decided not to take my metfomin last night and I didn't take my morning dose and the itching has subsided greatly. I am allergic to many other medications, but they cause me to break out into red itchy hives. I don't have hives, just miserable all over my body itching!!! I have used nothing different since I have been on the metformin. All lotions, soaps, etc. are all the same. The only thing new in my life is the metformin. I can't take Benedryl as it knocks me out for hours. I didn't think of the Claritin, but that is worth a try!!! As for keeping my skin moisturized, I use a moisturizing shower gel and baby oil gel as soon as I get out of the shower. Dry skin is not the problem. This is the type of itching that makes you want scratch your skin off. This is oh my gosh, if I don't scratch, I'm going to rip someone's head off itching. I'd put a call in to your doc before they leave for the weekend. If you're having this much problem with the metformin, you may not be able to tolerate it. If you don't hear from your doc today, i'd suggest stopping the metfo Continue reading >>

Is It Okay To Take Benadryl With Metformin?

Is It Okay To Take Benadryl With Metformin?

Is it okay to take Benadryl with Metformin? I take 500mg of Metformin 3 times a day. I was wondering if it would be safe to take a caplet of Benadryl like 2 hours after my metformin. Thanks to anyone who answers. Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Best Answer: There is not interaction between the two, but Benadryl can affect your blood sugar. What should I avoid while taking diphenhydramine? This medication may cause blurred vision and may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert and able to see clearly. Drinking alcohol can increase certain side effects of diphenhydramine. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any other cold, cough, allergy, or sleep medicine. Antihistamines are contained in many combination medicines. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much of this type of medicine. Check the label to see if a medicine contains an antihistamine.

Metformin Tablets Urgently Required

metformin tablets urgently required - Marrakech Forum We are in marrakech and my wife's bag has been snatched. I am diabetic and my metformin tablets were in the bag so I need to replace them urgently. Can I buy them in a chemist? I do have a photo copy of my uk repeat prescription with me to prove I am genuine. 1.Re: metformin tablets urgently required As many Moroccans suffer from diabetes, they are very likely to have what you need in stock. I'm sure they will help you once they know what happened! Please come back and let us know how it went. 2.Re: metformin tablets urgently required If you have a copy of the original prescription medication issued by your UK doctor there will be no problem obtaining this drug from a Moroccan Pharmacie, ask to speak to the senior 'chemist' who will most likely only speak French, but with a smattering of English, last year I was able to obtain Meberverine tablets from a Pharmecie in Casablanca simply by showing the original packaging of the drug in UK packaging, he then sold me the Moroccan equivalent but with the caveat that the dosage was different, so calculate this possibility before swallowing anything and making the necessary adjustments. 3.Re: metformin tablets urgently required Thank you both for the prompt reply. I will let you know how I get on tomorrow. 4.Re: metformin tablets urgently required You could go there tonight if you think you need to. 5.Re: metformin tablets urgently required Kaptain beat me to it.

Took a couple and slept like the dead. Woke refreshed with no more swollen eyes and face. When I read the labeling I found it was more than 4 tim Continue reading >>

Sleeping Aids And Diabetes

Sleeping Aids And Diabetes

People with diabetes certainly aren't immune to issues with insomnia or other sleeping problems that occur with age, jet lag or seasonal affective disorder. When that happens, sometimes counting sheep just doesn't cut it. But there has been concern discussed recently in the D-OC about using sleep aids with diabetes. A thread on TuDiabetes starts off with the notion that "any kind of sleep aid is taboo for an insulin-dependent diabetic." So we decided to put on our Mythbusters hat and investigate whether this claim is true or false... Although there aren't any recommended sleep aids specifically for people with diabetes, Kelley Champ Crumpler, a diabetes nurse educator and the wife of an endocrinologist, primarily recommends melatonin to treat sleeping problems. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone in your system that helps to control your sleep and wake cycles. Unlike insulin, melatonin is a hormone that is synthetically made and can be ingested, so a natural supplement is available over-the-counter (usually found in the vitamin section of your grocery store). "We have them start with a small, 1 mg tablet before bed, and can taper up as needed," Kelley says. "Melatonin won't render you useless like other sleep aid/hypnotics will. It's even safe for children to use." If that doesn't work, Kelley says that using an antihistamine that contains either diphenhydramine (found in Benadryl or nighttime pain relievers like Tylenol PM or Advil PM) or doxyalimine (found in the over-the-counter sleep-aid tablets Unisom). Anecdotal evidence on some of the diabetes forums shows that melatonin and antihistamines are the most popular way of treating insomnia. These meds are also "light" enough that they won't knock you out so much that you won't wake up naturally in an emergency Continue reading >>

These 15 Medications Can Cause A False Positive On Drug Tests

These 15 Medications Can Cause A False Positive On Drug Tests

We hear “false positive” as a defense from professional athletes all the time when it comes to drug screens—but unexpected results on drug screens really do happen. A urine drug screen tests for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. You may be more likely to be tested when applying for a job than when playing professional sports, but you could also be affected by a false positive. Here are several common medications—prescription and over-the-counter—that you’ll want to be aware of as potential culprits for a false positive. Amitriptyline. This is a tricyclic antidepressant used for chronic pain, neuropathy (nerve pain), depression, and migraine prevention. Amitriptyline may lead to a false positive urine test for the hallucinogenic drug LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide). Bupropion (generic Wellbutrin). Used as an antidepressant, for weight loss, and smoking cessation, bupropion may lead to a positive screen for amphetamine, methamphetamine, and LSD. Dextromethorphan. Found in Robitussin, Delsym and other over-the-counter cough suppressants. If you’ve taken a medication with dextromethorphan in it, your drug screen may be positive for opiates and PCP (phencyclidine). Diltiazem (Cardizem) is used for hypertension (high blood pressure) or to slow your heart rate if you have atrial fibrillation. If you’re taking diltiazem your urine drug screen may test as a false positive for LSD. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl). Many over the counter remedies contain diphenhydramine, an antihistamine also used as a sleep aid, including Tylenol PM and Advil PM. If you’ve taken these, you could test positive for methadone or PCP. Ibuprofen and naproxen (Advil/Motrin and Aleve). Two very common over the counter anti-inflammatory pain medications. If Continue reading >>
