    Metformin for Diarrhea

    my experience with metformin medicament turns out to be an evening meal. At night, they woke up with severe abdominal pain resulting in stomach cramps, with diarrhea and a feeling of vomiting. At night it was so bad that my friend thought he must call ambulance

    Metformin for Diarrhea

    I should increase the dose of Metfromin 1000 weekly by 1/2 tablet until I reached the dose of 1-0-1. I should take the first dose 1 / 2-0-0 for two weeks. Diarrhea occurred from 1 / 2-0-1 / 2. I was told that they would stop by themselves. So I kept increasing the dose by a 1/2 tablet weekly until I reached the prescribed dose of 2-0-2. However, the diarrhea got worse and worse until they reached a watery stage. They appeared unprepared for an attack, with no previous abdominal cramps. The water just started to leak, no matter where I was. I could not keep up with my work (after all, as a teacher, I can not just run from the classroom to the bathroom in the middle of class). The end was that I shit several times and went to bed at night, because the diarrhea was so sudden and fluid that I could not make it to the Kloo. I then discontinued Metformin 1000. After two days, the diarrhea was completely over. Four months later, I tried taking it again. Already at 1 / 2-0-1 / 2 tablets, the aqueous diarrhea began again, this time even more violent and even two days later even bloody. Already one day after discontinuation of metformin has set a completely normal bowel movement again. Well, I can not use metformin.

    Metformin for Diarrhea

    As long as I have taken metformin I have had most unpleasant side effects in the form of diarrhea, severe, sudden diarrhea. Unfortunately, I did not say that clearly enough to the doctors in Berlin and Leipzig. It even came to the fact that I did not come to a toilet in time (spare me – and the inclined reader-inside) more descriptions, at least then I changed my eating and Ausgehverhalten (never ate before appointments) and am also much lonelier become. All this was only when I was switched to insulin syringes.
