I am prescribed to 2.5 1000mg Metformin per day. However, that doesn't seem to be enough, because my blood sugar had been around 300 lately. I feel like I need to take 4 pills per day to keep it in check. Is that too much, and can you overdose on Metformin?

I suggest you contact your Dr. or Pharmacist, do not self medicate as this can happen:
What happens if I overdose?
Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. An overdose of metformin may cause lactic acidosis. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these symptoms of lactic acidosis: weakness, increasing sleepiness, slow heart rate, cold feeling, muscle pain, shortness of breath, stomach pain, feeling light-headed, and fainting.
