Why Am I Afraid to Give Up Metformin?

So my numbers are amazing right now, and my doctor has given me permissions to start working my way slowly down in Metformin over the next 6 months, to see if I still need it or not. So why in the heck haven't I started the process?

Why on earth am I scared to death to give up the Metformin?

That is the exact conversation I have been having with myself. :vs_laugh:

Thought so.

You started a list of plus vs minus? When you decide one way or the other, remember it's not permanent.

I see no major downside to either choice nor any reason to rush to a decision.

For me just starting to garner some kind of control, yours is a wonderful problem to have, as mbuster suggests, think it through, you will make the right decision. :vs_cool:

Cricket, that is awesome! I hope to have that problem someday. I finally got on Berberine.

I've been sick (sinus infection) and have managed to keep my BG below 140. I think there was one day that it went above 140. I had some beef soup, and I ate the potatoes. I tried to eat around them, but some found their way into my mouth LOL!

Think of the money you'll save in the long run. Congrats!

I don't pay anything for my Metformin, but if I switched to Berberine I would have to pay for it. That would be one factor if I had that decision to make. Also, I have heard of other benefits of Metformin.

What are the benefits of Berberine over Metformin?
