Formin Plus 500 Mg/750 Mcg Tablet Health Feed

I am type 2 diabetic and on medication. Metformin 1gm BD, vildagliptin 50 mg BD, also taking medicines for hypertension telmisartan H 40 BD and clonazepam 1 mg for anxiety. Also 1500 mg methylcobalamin once daily. I have been taking these medicines under medical advice. Is it dangerous to take methylcobalamin for so long? Someone recently told me it is poison.

Dear lybrate-user, nervigen np contains pregabalin, nortriptyline and methylcobalamin. This combination is usually given for diabetic neuropathy. From what you describe your pain started after you lifted a heavy weight. If the pain is in the shoulder region it may be a tear in the ligament. Nervigen np can be taken along with metformin and it will not interfere with the action of metformin. You may feel somewhat sleepy when you are on this medicine

The delayed version releases the drug more slowly and this usually eliminates the gastrointestinal problems.

Ir is immediate release and sr is sustained release formulations. Both work well but usually sr formulations have lesser gastrointestinal side effects.
