    Metformin for Polycystic ovaries; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have been taking metformin for 16 days now. In the first week I started with 1 x 500, now I take 1 x 1000 and from next week I should increase to 1 x 1500. I’ve been having flatulence and diarrhea since then. Since the increase to 1000 comes tremendous nausea feeling and crazy sweats as in women with menopause added. That makes me crazy. Besides, I’m just tired and always exhausted. Is that normal? I would like to stop it, because without metformin I feel better.

    Side effects: Sweats; Fatigue; Flatulence; Diarrhea

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have had diabetes mellitus type 2 for over a year and will be treated with metformin 850 mg 2 times a day. My Hba1c values have become so good that my doctor said they have no sugar at all! Which is wrong, of course! I’ve just kept up with diet and medication! But under the high dose metformin I had persistent nausea, so I did not know one more and took in addition MCP and travel pills. Finally, I’m allowed to inject a depot insulin! This relieves me clearly and there are no more food cravings and sweats!

    Side effects: Sweats; Hot hunger attacks; Nausea
