Where can I find more info on Metformin,I started taking metformin 500mg extended release tablets for type 2 diabetes about a month ago, once a day was prescribed and I lost some weight also my urine has darkened and sexual desire increased is this a common side affect and will it go away? I can't find anything about these type of side affects or is it because my sugar is regulated. I don't seem to have any other side effects.
Darkened urine and increased sexual desire are not known side effects of metformin ... if the urine is very dark and there is any pain, etc when passing urine please see the doctor. It could very well be because your sugar is regulated.
Sharry, I also had to take Metformin and experience weight loss (37 lbs. in 4 months) My urine also darkened but that was just temporary. Sexual desire
has also been increased. It has been 2 years and the weight is still off and increased sexual desire is still there... To met Metformin is a wonder drug !!!
