After being on Metformin for a month (and getting a period, Woot Woot!) the side effects SUCK! My endocrinologist has given me a script for MetforminER the extended release is suppose to help with the side effects. I really hope this helps because I am sick to my stomach all the time. I have been literally running to the bathroom.
I have given up the hope that Metformin will help me loose weight. My Dr. said to expect 3-5 weight loss.
Since starting Metformin I have lost to date 4 pounds. Something is better then nothing I suppose. I just hope I can get somewhat on a schedule so I can track my ovulation, and have a baby without other medication.
I am currently frustrated that I have not had a cycle yet.... but I am trying to be patient.
I plan to take the dose at night - I just hope I don't feel sick all night. I tried taking the Metformin at night and it was miserable.
