Tell me the side effects of Glimestar M1 and Amolopin 5mg

I am a 56 years old male and have been diagnosed with diabetes just a year ago and since then I have been prescribed Glimestar M1 and Amolopin 5mg ( for blood pressure ). I just wanted to know the side effects of the said drugs in the long run. Almost every day by late evening I feel my stomach full and a feeling of indigestion and dont feel like eating hence I skip my dinner everyday. Is it due to the tablets. Please advise.

Every synthetic drug has side effects. Even a simple ibuprofen (available OTC) has dangerous side effects. Try herbal route and a change in lifestyle and switch to Alkaline diet and lifestyle. The biggest SCAM Statin Drugs also have side effects. All drugs have impact on liver.

Hi,
Anti diabetic drugs do produce gastric upset but you have to continue.Dose can be adjusted according to your blood sugar.
With anti diabetic drugs you never skip your meal,otherwise there is possibility of hypoglycemia.
Bye and take care.
