If you need to stop taking metformin, you can discontinue abruptly without any problems. Are you diabetic ... or had getstational diabetes during your last pregnancy?
I actually know of a lady who took metformin during pregnancy, for diabetes, and has just recently had a healthly baby boy. All the best.
Metformin has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies have failed to reveal evidence of fetotoxicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Insulin remains the mainstay of therapy for gestational diabetes due to the close glucose control it affords. Metformin is only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.
