Met worked for me by curbing my appetite, so it doesn't just magically melt off the pounds - you should be eating less.Thanks for your inputs, it is much appreciated. Can one expect to loose some weight because of Metformin without changing diet and if so, how much weight?
Catherine? Cutting up the extended release tablets destroys their extended release properties, so that may be why they didn't work right when chopped.
i noticed the same thing and wondered if i was right about high carb meals and metformin. i started taking it a few months ago and the first six weeks i had a lot of nausea but this last month not much at all. every now and then it would hit me like when i first started metformin. it seemed it would happen after meals with high carb count.I think Metformin is only an aid in weight loss. Without changing diet and adding some exercise I doubt you would see significant weight loss. What I see with it, is that I seem to get full quicker. I also find if I eat a lot of carbs at one sitting that my stomach gets upset. So in a way it changes what you tend to eat. I also found a small amount (500 mg) did very little. I now take 5 times that 2550 mg.
