My dad takes metformin for his diabetes (ok, so his entire side of the family takes it for diabetes— PCOS and diabetes run through out my family history) and he suggested that I start with 1 a day for 2 weeks and then work up to my 2 a day suggested dose after that. I have found that waiting for my meal to settle a little while (usually about 15-20 minutes really helped me to avoid a lot of discomfort. I already have bathroom “issues” (I tend to go A LOT; a very regulated 30 minutes after I put anything in my mouth) so by waiting it just kind of wrapped into my normal habit and seemed a lot less intense.
Emily Taylor, despite being reunited with her husband from prison, becomes severely depressed with emotional episodes and suicide attempts. Her psychiatrist, Jonathan Banks, after conferring with her previous doctor, eventually prescribes an experimental new medication called Ablixa. The plot thickens when the side effects of the drug lead to Emily killing her husband in a "sleepwalking" state. With Emily plea-bargained into mental hospital confinement and Dr. Banks' practice crumbling around him, the case seems closed. However, Dr. Banks cannot accept full responsibility and investigates to clear his name. What follows is a dark quest that threatens to tear what's left of his life apart even as he discovers the diabolical truth of this tragedy. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@)
