Last December my doctor increased my metformin to 2 tablets day. This was ok but then in April when I had my A1C tested he increased the dosage to 4 a day. I then began experiencing severe digestive problems such as intestinal gas extreme and sulfar tasting belches. He said it was from the increase in dosage and backed it down to 2 a day. He is going to check A1C again in Sept. to see if it is where he wants it. It actually is not that bad 7.2 I am exercising and watching diet but hope it goes down so he does not add anything else to the metformin. Has anyone else had the digestive problems with larger amounts of metformin and if so what did you do.
