So my son wanted to tell me a joke for a couple mos..but because he didn't want me to break his legs he waited till I was over the side effects from my Metformin…lets just say I needed to always be around a bathroom and leave it at that..

So my son comes up to me and says…The Guinness book of World records just called…they recorded the longest conversation in the history of the world that only contained 5 sentences…it lasted 2 hours and was between two people taking Metformin…every time one person would begin a sentence the other would run into the bathroom… took two hours just to figure out whose turn it was to go by the toilet paper..

Okay so he was smart to wait…I probably would of back handed him if he told me this a few weeks ago..

My doctor, at the time, had me taking Metformin and DiaBeta. Metformin didn't give me any problems but DiaBeta sure did. Let's just say it is pretty hard to walk anywhere when your feet are hurting like hell. That was in 2005 and I refuse to it again…

I am on metformin and know exactly what you mean about the side effects. Fortunately, my bathroom visits have not been too numerous, but the mood swings at the beginning were outrageous. My husband calls me every night when he is leaving work to come home. I used to think—how sweet—he is being so considerate. Now, I really think it was a matter of self-preservation and he is checking to see if it is safe to come home. :)

Ahhh, a family much like mine. We are known to be uncouth and bodily functions are fair game. My step daughter is always telling me I married a can of mixed nuts. LOL. That's why I fit in so well.

Years ago when I was put on metformin it didn't bother me at all, and I was taking it 3 times a day, but then through pregnancies and having to be put on insulin I had went off of it, but earlier in this year my doctor tried me on it again with insulin and wow I totally know what you're talking about, I couldn't handle it at all and I know he said it would take a couple of weeks to adjust but I stopped taking it, which turned out it wasn't helping anyways, I just thought it was due to my neuropathy issues that I have with my stomach, didn't realize it effected others the same way

Laughing out loud. I only managed to last on Metformin for about 3 weeks, I simply could not handle the side effects. There are other medications that work better (in my opinion) and have less side effects. My doctor was fine with changing me very quickly. Happy Holiday Season. HUGS, Heidi
