Hi I have diabetes type 2 and I am taking metformin for about a week and I have nonstop diarrhea. What should I do? Go to the emergency I can't stand it anymore i hurt really bad.
Metformin does that a lot. It usually goes away after a couple of weeks. How much is metformin helping you? Have you seen a big drop in your sugar level? If not maybe you should just drop the drug
1) stop taking the drug and tell you doctor
2) cut back the dosage and see if your symptoms ease off. Go to a higher dose only after you can handle the metformin
