Metformin


overrated
 

Pros: 1. helps control bs readings some 2. less expensive treatment

Cons: 1. Constant diarrhea 2. Constant Nausea 3. Constant bloating

Overall: I took it for months. It worked at first but after about 5 weeks I had to have a bowel movement about every 30 minutes. When I was not in the restroom, I was nausea and bloating. I could not eat so it did not allow anything food in my system causing lower readings. It interfered with everything I tried to do.

DOING OKAY WITH IT
 

Pros: Taking 500 mg. twice daily

Cons: none

Overall: It's not bad, I'm finding my sugar levels are lower than 135. I check my levels 4 times per day.
