    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type i

    For almost 3 months, in addition to Novorapid, I take half a tablet of metformin in the evening before eating. My problem was that the insulin was very sluggish in the evening and I later always had high values before going to sleep. This problem has almost disappeared since the use of metformin. I take half a tablet in the evening (after consultation with my doctor) and can really report only a positive course. I had no side effects. Nothing to feel nausea, diarrhea, depression or anything like that. But it is probably also due to the very low dose (just half a tablet once in the evening). The only nice side effect was that the cravings disappeared in the evening. Have now lost even 7 pounds. Probably not just because of the metformin, but it did not bother me :-).

    Side effects: Weight loss

    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.

    Side effects: Weight loss; Anorexia; Nausea; Diarrhea
