I can only speak from my own experience. I have taken glucophage or the genaric metformin for about 8 years. No one ever explained to me that the metformin should be taken just before eating, the label from the pharmacy only said "take with food." A nurse explained to me that the metformin should be taken just before eating your meal, or it would be lots more ineffective. I find it works well, in conjuncion with my insulin. Good luck with your blood sugar.
