I have taken metformin 500mg for about 2 years.
Take metformin with a meal, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Some forms of metformin are taken only once daily with the evening meal. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Sorry to intrude, but how long ago did you go to the Dr.?
I suggest you make an appoinment asap.
Metformin is best given with meals to reduce commonly experienced gastric side effects (nausea, vomiting & diarrhea).
Hello francisteo, Maso is correct as always
Metformin is best taken with food.
Best to you!
