Hi Carol Sue! I have previously been on Metformin when I had a different GP but went off it while pregnant 4 yrs ago. I had no issues with it then. I asked about trying it again last summer. My new GP was not really in favor but wrote the script; however, for some reason the GI symptoms were much worse and I discontinued after a few weeks. The GP stated in Dec that they prefer not to prescribe until there is an official diagnosis. It amazes me how there is such a difference amongst doctors, lol! So, no, no meds right now which is fine with me. Dietary and exercise changes definitely needed!
