What Patients Say About Janumet 50 1000

Posted June 11th, 2011 by

Janumet 50 1000 (see details) is the brand name (and dosage level) of sitagliptin-metformin, a combination prescription drug used in the management of type 2 diabetes.  (50 refers to 50 mg of sitagliptin while 1000 refers to 1000 mg of metformin.)  In addition to diet and exercise, Janumet 50 1000 is prescribed when the use of metformin or sitagliptin alone does not adequately control the condition.

At PatientsLikeMe, where more than 130,000 patients are sharing their experiences with conditions, symptoms, treatments and more, 21 patients report using Janumet 50 1000 or a lower daily dosage (50 mg sitagliptin / 500 mg metformin).  What can we learn from these patients’ experiences?  Quite a bit, actually, thanks to PatientsLikeMe’s unique data-sharing platform.

Looking at the three treatment evaluations submitted for Janumet, all three patients rate the effectiveness as “Moderate,” while side effects were marked as “Mild,” “Moderate” and “Severe,” respectively.  The chief complaint from the patient who reported “Severe” side effects was diarrhea.  However, she writes, “Blood sugars are going down.”

Have You Experienced Catalyn Side Effects?

Posted March 13th, 2011 by

Looking for a place to share and learn about Catalyn side effects – either the side effects you experienced while taking this supplement or the lack thereof?  You’ve come to the right place.

Catalyn is a multivitamin, mineral and trace mineral concentrate that contains Vitamin B6, Riboflavin, Thiamine, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and a proprietary blend of whole food ingredients.  Created by Dr. Royal Lee in 1929, Catalyn is the flagship product of Standard Process, which specializes in whole food supplements.   Using a high-vacuum, low-temperature drying process, the idea behind Catalyn is to provide nutrients and vitamins in their most potent and bioavailable form – the natural state.

At PatientsLikeMe, where more than 120,000 patients are sharing their experiences with conditions, symptoms, treatments and more, only one patient reports taking Catalyn as a daily supplement for general health.  Given the longevity of this 82-year-old product, which is designed to address vitamin deficiencies without “mega doses,” we know there are many others who may have used Catalyn as an over-the-counter treatment.  Did you find it effective?  Were there any side effects?   What dosage did you take?

If you’ve used Catalyn, we encourage you to share these types of experiences and more to help other patients.  PatientsLikeMe’s unique data-sharing platform allows you to share detailed data about all types of treatments, interventions and lifestyle modifications that have helped you, harmed you or simply had no effect.
