great news butter. How are you doing with the side effects from the metformin? Have you tried taking a folate or b complex to ward off the leg pain? HOpe it works well for you!

Well,other than running to Bathroom every 10-15 minutes,there is no Leg pain (yet),but I only been taking 6 Day's.Usually it takes 2 bottles before the Leg pain sets in.I take double doses Folic Acid and B Complex QD as well as Elemental Calcium BID.
