I have been on Metformin for years. My numbers have always been terrible. I have felt like I was in a fog, tired, and a bit weak. Well, a week ago I ran out of the Metformin, and couldn't afford to reorder. Guess what? The fog is gone! It just lifted from my whole body. I'm not as tired and weak as I was. Which helped get rid of the depressed feeling. Plus, I don't seem to feel as hungry all the time, like I was when taking the Metformin. Need to go in for a blood test, and I'm wondering what my Dr. will say about this, because my numbers are better too. (eating less). Marie
I didn't know that you can buy an A1c test at Walmart. Thanks for the info. I quit Metformin about 2 weeks ago. It was not done on purpose. I ran out of Metformin and wasn't able to refill. After going without it for 3 or 4 days, I noticed a change. It was if a fog had been lifted, both physically and mentally. I don't think I"ll ever take Metformin again. There seems to be little change in my glucose count. In fact I'm less hungry and my count is lower. Especially at bedtime check. It's good to be rid of all the sore muscles. I was so tired of my body always aching.
