Metformin

Metformin may rarely cause a serious, life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis. Tell your doctor if you have kidney disease. Your doctor will probably tell you not to take metformin. Also, tell your doctor if you are over 65 years old and if you have ever had a heart attack; stroke; diabetic ketoacidosis (blood sugar that is high enough to cause severe symptoms and requires emergency medical treatment); a coma; or heart or liver disease. Taking certain other medications with metformin may increase the risk of lactic acidosis. Tell your doctor if you are taking acetazolamide (Diamox), dichlorphenamide (Keveyis), methazolamide, topiramate (Topamax, in Qsymia), or zonisamide (Zonegran). Tell your doctor if you have recently had any of the following conditions, or if you develop them during treatment: serious infection; severe diarrhea, vomiting, or fever; or if you drink much less fluid than usual for any reason. You may have to stop taking metformin until you recover. If you are having surgery, including dental surgery, or any major medical procedure, tell the doctor that you are taking metformin. Also, tell your doctor if you plan to have any x-ray procedure in which dye is Continue reading >>

    Metformin and dental work

    I am T2, dx in June of this year, with pretty good control. I am on Metformin, 500 mg twice daily.
    I am scheduled to have a root canal redone in a few days. I recently ran across instructions to stop Metformin two days before oral surgery. Does anybody have experience with this? I know Metformin takes awhile to ramp up. Do I need to eat really carefully during those two days? (I don't, usually, I'm afraid.) Or, is there gonna be enogh carryover during that time to keep me more or less out of trouble?

    Bob, i've had my teeth clean ?? 4 times since being on metformin, and i've had a filling done
    a root canal isn't really oral surgery...... the dentist cleans out the dead root/nerves in your tooth, then preps the tooth for a filling or a cap
    it is important that you tell your dentist that you have diabetes
    give his office a call and see if you need to stop the met before the root canal (i only know that contrast dye scans require you to stop the met)

    My husbnd is T2 and he just had a root canal done and is on 2000 mg and he never stopped his. I would for sure tell the dentist, I would imagine if you stopped taking it ,it would knock you into highs and thats not good.

Diabetes Drugs: Metformin

Editor’s Note: This is the second post in our miniseries about diabetes drugs. Tune in on August 21 for the next installment. Metformin (brand names Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Riomet, Fortamet, Glumetza) is a member of a class of medicines known as biguanides. This type of medicine was first introduced into clinical practice in the 1950’s with a drug called phenformin. Unfortunately, phenformin was found to be associated with lactic acidosis, a serious and often fatal condition, and was removed from the U.S. market in 1977. This situation most likely slowed the approval of metformin, which was not used in the U.S. until 1995. (By comparison, metformin has been used in Europe since the 1960’s.) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required large safety studies of metformin, the results of which demonstrated that the development of lactic acidosis as a result of metformin therapy is very rare. (A finding that has been confirmed in many other clinical trials to date.) Of note, the FDA officer involved in removing phenformin from the market recently wrote an article highlighting the safety of metformin. Metformin works primarily by decreasing the amount of glucose made by Continue reading >>
