Onglyza Vs Metformin

What is Onglyza Onglyza (saxagliptin) is an oral diabetes drugs that helps control blood sugar levels. It works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating. Saxagliptin is for people with type 2 diabetes. Onglyza is sometimes used in combination with other diabetes medications, but is not for treating type 1 diabetes. How does onglyza work Onglyza is a daily diabetes medication in the class known as gliptins (DPP-4 inhibitors). These medicines help to control blood glucose levels by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas and decreasing the body's release of glucagon. Saxagliptin is used alone or alongside other oral diabetes drugs. These may include metformin, sulfonylurea or a thiazolidinedione. Morning blood sugar can rise when you're sleeping, due to the pancreas releasing too much glucagon, which makes the liver release too much sugar. Onglyza (saxagliptin) reduces the amount of sugar released by your liver overnight, which may result in lower blood sugar. After-meal blood sugar spikes can occur when your pancreas doesn't release enough insulin or your body's cells do not use insulin properly. Onglyza (saxagliptin) may lower after-meal Continue reading >>

    I have been taking Lipitor 10mg for probably 10 years now. As prescribed by my doctor, I took 1 every night when going to bed. Last week at my 6 month visit, I mentioned to him that sometimes I forget to take it when going to bed, so would it be OK to take it in the morning with the rest of my medications, and he said it should be OK to do so. I haven't noticed any changes yet. The other drugs I take in the morning are Metformin, Altace, Atenolol, Norvasc, and a coated asprin. My question is: Is it BETER to take the Lipitor at bedtime on its own, or taking it in the morning with the other meds?

    Welcome Peedeem; I am not trying to sound rude or snotty by any means, but in my opinion there is no safe or good time to take Lipitor. If you read the posts on this forum 90% of us have sustained damage from a statin drug and we no longer take them.
    I hope Lipitor is working for you and wish you all the best. Maybe someone else will be able to answer your question or you may want to ask your pharmacist.

  3. peedeem

    Thanks for your reply SusiO. Your opinion is definitely not rude or snotty. I will read through more of the posts on here, but, according to blood tests my cholesterol has been normal for the past 5-6 years, so I plan on continuing with it. Funny thing just happened: My wife was making cheese, cucumber, and lettuce sandwiches for us. The cheese had some mold on one end of it. She asked me if I checked the date on the package when we purchased it a couple of weeks ago, and I told her it was January 2008. She immediately went to the garbage where she had tossed the packaging, looked at it and said "You can take Lipitor!". I had just told her about reading that Lipitor causes memory loss.

Medicines For Type 2 Diabetes

The aim of keeping well with type 2 diabetes is to keep your blood glucose level in the normal range as often as possible. The first-line treatment for type 2 diabetes includes: Healthy eating Regular exercise Losing weight Physical activity and healthy eating are the cornerstone treatment for type 2 diabetes. Due to the progressive nature of type 2 diabetes, most people will eventually need to take medication or insulin to keep blood glucose levels in the target range. If you have made lifestyle changes and your blood glucose level is still above target, you will also need to take medicine. Medicines are taken in addition to and not instead of healthy eating, regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight. There are various types of medicines used to treat type 2 diabetes that work in different ways.

    If I've missed one of my twice-daily doses of metformin, for example if I've been eating out and not had the tablets with me, is it best to take the tablets later, or skip them on that occasion? Or doesn't it really matter if it's a one-off?

  2. psignathus

    if it is the same day then I take it when I remember but I wouldn't necessarily double dose to catch up.

  3. Art Of Flowers

    Metformin only has minimal benefits, so missing taking it occasionally won't have much effect.

This question is most often asked by people looking to get the most amount of fat burn out of their cardio program. Obviously we would like to do that without sacrificing precious muscle mass. Since we're trying to get to the bottom of the most effective way to time our cardio program. We want to make sure that doing the cardio is actually burning fat. Doing the cardio before your workout, unless you're working out on an empty stomach, is going to burn a mix of carbs and dietary fat. That means that you're essentially going to be burning what you ate earlier that day during your cardio workout not fat. In fact it'll probably take you a full half hour to just start burning body fat especially with steady state cardio. The other downside to doing cardio before a workout is a

    Missing a Metformin Dose

    I'm at work now and forgot to bring my metformin pill with me. I think I'm going to bring a small bottle of met to work in case this happens again. For lunch I intend to have zero carbs in hopes this will be better since I haven't had my met. I'm still relatively new at this and wonder if any of you have noticed ill effects when you missed a dose?

  2. trinitarian3n1

    I don't think missing one dose is going to have that much effect. Metformin is not a bolus-type medication that's going to trigger insulin release.

    Ooops, sorry about the title. I accidentally hit enter I guess and don't know how to edit the title.
    John from what my understanding is that met stays in the body and takes time to get out so you should be ok for today, this will be a good lesson on many fronts today.
