Default Got my prescription for Metformin ER

It is for 500 mg once a day but no instructions as to when to take it. The pharmacist (a type 2 diabetic himself) takes his in the morning. What do you guys think?

Metformin will build up in your system over a month or so. I take the regular and take mine 3 times a day. I would call your doctor and ask when the best time to take it is. Since it is extended I'm not sure it matters.
