I have a question for anyone who has been prescribed Metformin to assist in weight loss. I have had lots of blood work & test run. I am not diabetic, but have PCOS. My insulin is really out of wack, so that is why I am on Metformin (which you all probably can guess but I've never posted anything ever on a forum before so I don't know all the do's & don'ts).
Anywhoo- I was prescribed Metformin 3 weeks ago. I have been taking it off & on since (I skipped all last week). This medication is giving me CRAZY diarrhea. I've seen that this is a common side effect but does anyone know how long it lasts? I know I should be taking it everyday (2x a day), but on day's where I am out & about or have company over, I can't spend half the day in the bathroom. Any tips, experiences to share, anything to help??
I go see my Dr. next week to check in, but I just can't wait to find out if I am normal or not (loaded question
Also, any eating tips that work well with Metformin?
Thanks in advance to all who took the time to read this & or help this gal out!
