    Metformin hydrochloride The remedy causes bloating, stomach problems, loss of appetite and general discomfort. Of the effect, I can not yet report, because after 3 1/2 weeks of application, I have no effect (except side effects) noticed. I will look for an alternative, because that does not have to be.

    Metformin for Fertility disorders; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    The drug needs to be crept in. I started with 1 tabl. / day and am now at 3 pcs / day. The initial diarrhea has given complete, as well as the nausea in the first days. I still have an appetite loss, but I’m not really sad about that, so it has a positive side effect. In addition, with the help of metformin, I have already lost 7 kg and I think that was only the beginning. I do not like crystal sugar any more, I have a terrible feeling in my mouth, which is why I do not eat sweets any more.

    I got metformin because I was diagnosed with PCO syndrome. Since I reject hormone contraception and thus the pill, I have just received metformin. In addition, birth control pills are poor in insulin resistance 🙂 I had side effects only in the first 2-3 weeks. In the first revenue I had diarrhea, flatulence and loss of appetite, which then quickly put back. I lose weight and only get a little flatulence when I eat something very fatty or carbohydrate. Although the metformin does not work at the moment, the effect should not be seen until the first 10-12 weeks. I’m curious then The therapy with mteformin is in Dt. off-lable, so I have to pay for everything myself. for 4 months that’s around 15 €, so cheaper than the pill, so I’m fine.

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Since I’ve always had to deal with hardship, I can report that I have finally had regular bowel movements since I take the drug. However, I often have to deal with nausea shortly after the Einhhame and strengthened winds. Shortly after taking it, I am completely without any appetite and the thought of eating is unpleasant …. but that is good for my overweight. In the meantime I have become accustomed to this accompanying phenomenon. About the effectiveness, I can not report anything, because I was first adjusted to the drug. You can also partially positive side effects.
