Metformin


Works for me
 

Pros: Metformin is really working for me. I was diagnosed January 1, 2013 and started at 1/2 of a pill at night. I was to take that dose for 1 week and then increase to 1 a night for another week then every week increase by 1/2 til I was taking two at night. I am currently still only taking the 1 at night and keeping my sugars below typically 125. I would say not to bad.

Cons: I hate taking meds everyday.

Overall: Its going very well.
