Hi All, I have been taking starlix and insulin (lantus) for the last five days. On days 1 and two I felt sick to my abdomen and a minor groggy on waking up. Then day three and four I felt excellent. Last evening I desired to see how well starlix worked its carbs against 2 slices of sausage pizza with further cheese. Well very first off I got so filled up on two slices that I immediately had to lie down. I felt as even though my sugar was shooting through the roof. I checked my glucose two hrs after and it was 246. Anyway the side effects I had tonight have been much less then pleasant and I believed I may well finish up in the ER. Nausea, light headed, palpitations. I do really feel considerably much better when I have a light meal on starlix rather then filling up to the gill.
I was so messed up I was really weak and exhausted and could barley get off the bed.
Anyway, do these symptoms ever go away. I dont feel I can take the nausea a lot lengthier? also does that metalic taste ever go away. I never like that taste in my mouth all day.

I contact it “Carb Shock” been on starlix for 4 many years and if I have way also several negative carbs (bread, pizza) I go thru the identical issue, so I had to modify how I eat. And with carb shock also comes the diareah (my entire body rejecting these poor carbs). They finally place me on Starlix with Avandamet and I have a far better partnership with carbs then I did with Starlix and insulin. The final Dr I saw says not to combine starlix with insulin treatment due to the fact a single is hormone and starlix makes you generate your very own insulin producing for far more ups and downs with your sugars and obtain much more weight.
