Meformin

Meformin

Hi, I just started metformin today. My A1C was 7.1. It's 500mg two pills twice a day. I'm just wondering if this is the norm to start, I have IBS and am nervous. I only took one this morning even though I'm suppose to take two. Anyone else started on two pills twice a day? Thank you.

Yes I've been taking 2000 mg for 10 years it's rough on the stomach but I there is a slow release metformin it costs a lil more but it releases slowly through out the day and easier on your stomach.
