Works for me!

Pros: No bad reactions and keeps my BS down.

Cons: none

Overall: I've been on Metformin for a very long time. Don't remember the first dosage, but I know the Dr. upped me to 1000mg twice a day and kept me on that for several years. He finally added insulin for about 2 yrs. Finally he reduced the Metformin to 500mg twice a day, and kept me on insulin. My numbers are under control.
