    Hi Contralto,
    How are you feeling this morning, or (Night) as good as one can expect to be, with this condition to deal with, I hope?


    I appreciate the trouble you've gone too, to provide me with the Medical Information shown above, but unfortunately it is for a different type of medication, to the one I've been taking. The information you've submitted above is for a type of Medication called "TRADJENTA" and the Medication that I'm currently taking is called "Trajentamet" but it is very easy to see how one could make a mistake, as the names are very familiar in both spelling and their sound when spoken. So I want to thank you for both the time and effort you put in to bring this to my attention.

    Hi @Stemar 2
    The medication Tradjenta is a trade name for Linagliptin
    The meds you are taking Trajentamet consists of two active ingredients
    Linagliptin ( Tradjenta ) and Metformin. So the information @Contralto gave you is correct for your medication Trajentamet
    Hope this is helpful to you

    Hi Contralto,
    How are you feeling this morning, or (Night) as good as one can expect to be, with this condition to deal with, I hope?


    Sorry to hear your suffering from a long standing Bone Infection, but it sounds like the Doctors are looking into doing something to try and repair the infection which your looking forward to having done. So that your Quality of life shall improve immensely, so I wish you all the best in the coming future and for the success of the treatment, for your infection.

    I don't know about the other names my medication goes by, I only know what's typed on the Box that the Tablets come in and what the GP writes on the Scripts I get and that name is Trajentamet, I use to take Metformin but it started making me throw Up if I took it with Food, as was recommended by my GP. So my GP put me onto this Trajentamet to take twice a day, 1 in the am; and the other one to be taken in the pm; So that's what I do at the present time.

    As for what I had for Breakfast, well I had 2 Slices of Shortcut Bacon, 1 Egg Fried in Butter and some of the Fat left by the Bacon, A Tomato and some Mushrooms, Followed by a Hot Coffee with Milk and Sweeteners.


    Lunch was 2 Slices of Toast with Butter and Cream Cheese Spread, plus a Hot Coffee with Milk and Sweeteners.

    Tea was 2 Chicken Rissoles with Mixed Veggies and Mushroom Gravy, plus a Hot Coffee with Milk and Sweeteners.

    A ribeye steak fried in a large amount of butter and olive oil. A fried egg cooked in the same fat. The fat. A handful of walnuts. Two almonds. You must excuse me now, the kettle has just boiled.

    UPDATE!!! A hunk of mature Red Leicester while waiting for my tea to brew.

    I can't believe you can lose weight this way!

    Super proud of myself with this. Just made tea now and I had a jalapeño burger topped with pepperoni, spicy cheese, bacon, fried egg and spring onions. All wedged between a portobello mushroom. Plus more cheese. Love it! IMG_0836.jpg
