Hey all! Some of you may remember me :D 29 year old Type 2, diagnosed last August. I've been on 2x500mg of Metformin twice a day, breakfast and dinner and 2mg of Amaryl/Glimepiride since diagnosis. Worked great, took me from an 11.3 down to 6.1 this January.
However recently I've been having SERIOUS gastrointestinal distress. We're talking not a normal ahem taken in maybe a month. No idea why this would have started recently but it's making life really hard to live :L The only thing I can think is perhaps my mail away insurance Rx program may have started using a different brand/manufacturer? Maybe something about the pill like a coating etc is different? I know that the #1 complaint about Glucophage is gastro issues, stomach aches or loose stool etc, but just perplexed about why this started about 9 months after taking it…
Would I be able to take other oral meds? I've tried taking probiotics and Pepto doesn't seem to really help or settle anything.
