Reviews for Pramlintide
Review by 54 year-old female (taken for 1 to 6 months):
SymlinPen 60 (pramlintide) for Diabetes, Type 1: I think every diabetic should be on this. In a normal individual it is produced with insulin and released at the same time to keep sugar from rising too much after a meal, to keep the food in the stomach longer, give a feeling of fullness and control appetite, and keep the liver from producing too much insulin. Type1's and 2's both benefit from Symilin's action of blunting that peak of glucose after a meal, taking less insulin (because of its synergistic effect and preventing the liver from adding to the problem by producing glucose on top of it all. For those who are overweight, it controls appetite so you can get your mind off of food and eat normal sized portions.

Review by RWeiger:
Symlin (pramlintide) for Diabetes, Type 1: Symlin, for me, has allowed proper digestion and has eliminated loose stools... which I experienced for 48 years and thought of as a 'normal' condition... and has brought signifigant comfort to my personal life. I am careful to delay injection until the meal is in front of me ready to eat to head off any negative nausea effect.
