If you trouble with diarhea or some diabetes side effects, You can take the tablets and resolve the problems immediately. Once upon a time i had a problem with diarhea I have to resolve myself.

Metformin will cause diarrhea. Some people say it will go away over time. Some people it never goes away and the doctor has to change their meds. I put up with the side effect for about 7 – 8 weeks before I stopped taking it. Since my numbers continued to get better with diet alone, I didn’t have to take any other meds.

Also you have to watch out for sugar free products. A lot of them have sugar alcohol. I started to use sugar free maple syrup. It contained 12 grams sugar alcohol per serving. Shortly after using it, I found myself running to the bathroom. I read someplace on the Internet that sugar alcohol has this effect on lot of people. I had to stop using it.

I found that adding more fiber to my diet made a big difference, just check the label to make sure there is no added sugar and try not to take it within 2 hours of taking your meds as it can interfere with absorbtion.

I could not tolerate Metformin because of the side effect, diarrhea. I felt the same way you do, and never knew what was going to set it off. It was especially hard to deal with at my job because I don't have a job I can just get up and leave for the bathroom.
I had to stop taking Metformin. I now take Glipizide, and that has not been a problem.
I hope you find relief because it is so hard to deal with diarrhea and live a normal life. Good Luck.

I am fortunate not to have any side effects from the diabetes but I do have a coworker that suffers from too much Metformin. Prior to being diagnosed with Diabetes she suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). You may want to ask your doctor what can be done for your particular problem because it could be due to any meds that you might be taking for the diabetes. Keep us all informed on how you overcome this!
