My doctor can't believe that I had so many issues because all his other patients ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on 300 milligrams for 3 months. I have been a diabetic for 20 years. With 2000 milligrams of metformin I got my a1c down from 8.1 to 6.8. Over time metformin looses effectiveness. I lost 13 lbs. Only side effect is increased urination which will go down over time. I have less yeast infections as well. I am very pleased with this drug so far.
