Metformin and Aleve
I have been taking Metformin for about 4 yrs now, and just the thought of swallowing the pill makes me wanna gag. I hate the taste of it on my tongue. I also take it while I eat... at least before my last bite, so that I know that it will go down. Another thing I noticed is, when I forget to take it for a day, I get gassy when I start it again. I thought it was just me.

I HAVE BEEN TAKING 500 MGS OF METFORUM A DAY FOR 10 YEARS. AT FIRST IT MADE ME SICK. VERY SICK TO MY STOMACH. BUT I STARTED EATING SOMETHING FIRST BEFORE I TOOK MY PILL. I FOUND THAT WAS THE THING TO DO. NOW I JUST TAKE IT AND I DONT ET SICK ANYMORE

There is a time release Metformin which helped me with some reactions. Dr. almost didn't mention it though. Tammy

I have the runs all day. If I bend down 2 tie my shoe, underwear change. My stomach is upset all the time. I'm afraid to pass gas, I might shard myself.

My doctor prescribed 1000 mg Metformin twice a day. I took just the first evening and second day morning and evening. I had a total throw up the whole evening dinner and little lunch grapefruit. I stopped taking that. I just went back to my old pill Glyb/Metformin 2.5/500. I watch what I eat now in order to take just half of it once daily. If I have a big dinner, I had to take the whole pill. I try to eat less meats and more vegetables. My sis just warned me on the long taking Metformin

I am light headed on the Metformin too. Just started it a couple of weeks ago.

I know the feeling. It gave me lactic acidosis. I am trying to be compensated by the doctors who prescribed it without considering that I had chf and kidney damage. I was t Ken off the drug but two weeks later I am still dealing the gas, bloating. A gastroenterology is who studies the digestive tract
