question about metformin

question about metformin

I have type 2. It started a year ago and it was 7.5. I got it down to 6.5. I was tested 6 months later and it was back up to 7.5. My question if my doctor wants to increase my Metformin from 500 twice a day to 1000 three times a day. I don't really think I want to do that. What does others think? Ginny
