I take 1500 Metformin ER, all at once. I've tried morning, afternoon, evening, etc., except 3 in the morning.

When I first started taking it, I took it in the morning and it worked out really well, then had to switch to evening. I am now on Insulin at night and back to taking the Metformin ER in the morning. Have to give it time to adjust, but so far, the past two days, my lunch and dinner readings have been good.

Trial and error with my experience. Good Luck finding the right time, you will

Statins and ACE inhibitors work best when taken at night.

Metformin works best when divided into two doses.

Ask your pharmacist.
