Glipicide user, 5 mg. Take prior to eating
(Park Ridge, IL 60016)
For sometime now I’ve had extreme bouts of diarrhea, prior to this I was on metformin with even worse diarrhea. I told my dr. I wanted something that wasn’t going to hit me like this.
That’s when I started glipicide which didn’t bother me for some time- then the bouts started again. I saw my gastro dr. who says I should take Imodium 2-3x a day when bouts ensue.
I’ve had a colonoscopy that i feel wasn’t conclusive. I’d like to know if it’s the diabetic med or something else.
It is difficult to go out anywhere when you never know if you’re going to have an accident or stomach pains. This is demoralizing and I want it to stop. I was also told I have a weak spincther muscle. Is there no cure? Or treatment?
I’ve been on different meds for about 5 yrs. and I’d like to be off them; with some of the side effects, I’m reading about. Even with all the BMs I’m not losing weight and I really only eat one meal a day.
My sugar isn’t terribly high, but if my pancreas isn’t right I need to know why I’m told I’m insulin resistant. Thanks.
