the drugist said its to much? I said the dr. said to go to 2 pill twice a day.
I take 1000 mg pills. BJR.
The recommended starting metformin dose is 500 mg twice daily. The maximum metformin dosing for children age 10 to 16 is 2000 mg, and for adults age 17 and older is 2550 mg. The dose of metformin should be increased only when necessary and should be increased slowly in order to avoid side effects.
As Andres has suggested, you must follow the docs advice.
