Thanks everyone for your input!!! Things settled down a bit after the initial 500 mg. However, after adding the second dose of 500 mg, Im experiencing nausea, bloating, flushing in hot weather, no appetite, etc. I checked with my doc and he suggests hanging in a bit longer; as long as I can tolerate it as Metformin is the best option for me right now.. Its been 4 weeks…yikes!

Thanks Colleen. Yes, I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2008, but we managed it through diet and exercise. My A1C ranged 5.9-7.2. This last lab indicated it went up to 8.0, so my dr. started me only this week on metformin. Just curious what other folks have experienced taking it AND how long can you stay on it before moving to insulin? Im experiencing some side effects and wonder if they continue or decrease over time? I see my dr again in 3 months. 🙂

Ive been managing diabetes through diet and exercise…until now. A1C just hit 8.0 and Dr. put me on Metformin. 500 mg 1st week. 1000 mg after that. Stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhea. Will this go away?
