Not noticed any serious side effects except they seem to pass through my system very quickly. I take 3 x 500mm tablets in the evening around 7:00pm and it is not unusual to pass them the next morning around 12 hrs later - intact. Is this normal?
I too had a problem similar to yours when I first started with the Metformin.
I talked with my endocinologist about it and have since read in several publications that it is indeed normal. According to all of them, the "good" has been absorbed and that is just an outside "shell" for the medicine in it.
Anyway, after using it for almost a year, I do not see this happening anymore.
