Welcome to the forum Mark! We are glad to have you as a member! There are plenty of posts and threads about Metformin on the forum, so your Metformin question should get answered quickly. I just added Metformin ER to my blood glucose medications and I take it after my evening meal. I hope you can find the time to visit the forum often and take care!Hi...my name is Mark. I am 54 yrs old. Have been borderline diabetic for years, and really ignored it. I'm 5'10" and weigh in at @275. I smoked, and drank beer...both too much. I quit smoking, and stopped drinking beer, as they kinda go hand in hand. Went to the Doctor and had A1C done, along with other blood work. My A1C was 8.2
Today I picked up my perscription for Metformin, 500mg twice a day. I am a finance manager in the car business and work long hours with really NO consistency in eating times...it's kinda "when I can". A lot of days I only eat once...lunch, or maybe early supper...depends. I'm very confused on best times to take Metformin, and have read multiple scenarios. I want to thank you all ahead of time for the help I'm about to receive. Thank You !!!
