... what can I do to stop it
I answered you yesterday, I apologize for this site not posting it. Hair loss is not a listed side effect of metformin. I've found quite a few people taking it have noticed hair loss like you have. Possible solutions: finasteride (Proscar,Propecia) which is OTC (over-the-counter) and minoxidil (Rogaine) which is a prescription. The minoxidil has not been highly successful. There are other answers with more natural everyday items, but you will need to search the internet for them. Try "metformin and hair loss solutions".
