I am having possible symptoms of lactic acidosis. I have run a month long test of on and off metformin. (Doseage is 50 mg of Januvia and 1000 metformin). Started the amount last night, woke with muscle pain and twitching in legs, upper chest felt like someone sitting on it, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, overall body stiffness.
Thank you for your question! Metformin is the only drug in its class approved for use in the United States. However, there are other types of medication available. Lactic acidosis is a serious complication. If you are experiencing symptoms of lactic acidosis, you should contact your doctor and discuss your symptoms. Best of luck!
