Hello I was recently put on Metformin ER 500mg. My doctor stated that I should take 1 tab by mouth twice daily with meals. I understand this most likely means at two different times in the day. However, would I be able to take both tablets at my dinner meal?
My Dr. just suggested I try metformin to try to make my cycles more regular. I took one on Friday and haven't taken one since because it upset my stomach so bad! Has anyone else had side effects with it and does anyone have any success stories because of it?
I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
[Started 10th December, 2010] In addition to TWO Metformin 500mg. tablets, morning and evening, with food. Early days yet, but so far no reaction at all to the Glimepride, but there does seem to be a quite marked reduction in my blood glucose levels. Feeling quite well in my self. Blood pressure is generally tracking along as 'Normal'. Most readings so far this month are below 120 Systolic.
My doc gave me metformin to start taking and today is day 3 of 500mg and will work up to 3 pills a day. We were just going to do metformin but now after reading a lot I'm wondering if we shouldn't just do metformin and clomid together? Better changes? What is everyone elses experiences? Did metformin help all by itself? I have PCOS. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!!

From Aug 2008 to June 2009 to manage my diabetes my doctor put me on Brand - GLYCIPHAGE SR 500mg (Generic - Metformin HCL 500mg) Dosage - 1/2 Tab morning and evening which managed my sugar levels but it lead to severe weight loss. Now since last two months under a different doctor;s advice I have stopped this medicine and at the moment iam not taking any medicine to manage my sugar level.
Tab Storfib(Atonastatin calcium 10mg and Fenofiberate 145mg tablets) one tab daily night. Tab Glychiphage 500mg daily once and Ecosporine 75mg once daily. After consulting the cardialogist he chaged the tablets to Tayo 60K one per weak, Tab Perzeek one daily for six weeks, Tab tgr 160z one daily, ecosporin 75 and shelcal 500 one daily. I am trying to avoid oily foods as far as possible. Taking much water. But my constipation is troubling a lot. During summer it will be much more.
I started my husband and my self on 5 mg twice daily of D-Ribose, 500mg 3 times daily of pantothenic acid B-5, and 500mg. vitamin C 3 times daily to our daily vitamin regimen. To anyone who suffers from chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, you should seek a natural therapist to access your adrenals if your endocrinologist won't. I had suspicion it was my adrenals causing most of my problems for the past 21/2 years but no doctor bothered to check them.

Did your doctor start you on Clomid right away with the Metformin, or did you try Metformin for a while first to see if you'd ovulate? Just wondering because I've heard so many conflicting views on whether or not someone with PCOS should be started on Clomid, from so many different doctors and everything. I would love for you to let me know how it all turns out for you.
I started Clomid this past Saturday, started in day 5 of menses. But I'm also combining it with the Metformin 500mg, 3 * a day. I wish you luck! Me too! I know it can be very emotional, I tend to think about it all the time, and worry, but the truth is, you really need to focus, and get on with everyday activites. I tend to think about it, and get real upset, that gets you no where. I'm really praying that the Clomid works as well. Keep us up to date girl! ! ! !
I started with10 tabs (50mg), and now I'm taking 1 tab (5mg). However, it seems like 1 tab is not enough to control my lupus. I have been taking high and low back and fourth for this past year and I absolutely have MOON FACE even though my husband convinces me everyday that I don't. I really hate what this steriod does to me. I heard so much that it gives soo much of the bad side effect later on, but it works on patient with my type of lupus.
Like someone else said, it was like getting a pap smear. I have given birth before, maybe that influenced it? I also took 500mg of Advil half an hour before, as advised by my doctor. Also took antibiotics two days before and three days after to prevent infection. Are_you_there_god - I had my HSG done CD10 this month, it is now CD21 and I still haven't o'ed either! I usually o late (CD17-19ish) but I'm getting a little worried. I'd never heard of it affecting ovulation.
I have been diagnosed with PCOS and am currently taking clomid and metformin. I am on my cd4 and have my hsg test schedule for this friday. Reading all of your post have made me very optimistic. I will keep everyone informed and all of yous will be in my prayers!!!
I am not mad, but happy for her, but I would be totally honest with your girls, I am a tab bit jelous. I don't know, last year when I was prego with my son and lost him, she blamed me, and made a huge scene about my M/C, saying I was young, not married, and that my hubby to be (at that point in time) was not a good man. Well it tore me family in the middle. I mean for months! we didn't talk, we could see each other.
I was wondering if they always do the HCG trigger shot before an IUI. I am taking clomid and metformin (not diabetic though). Its so surreal knowing that there is the possibility that sometime this week, we could be making a baby! lol Good luck to you all and baby dust to everyone!!!!!
