I have not taken the er formula but took the regular and it made me sick. It didn't at first but then I started getting sick and after an MRI and several tests turning out negative I thought it may be the metformin when I eat something with an acid, oranges, vinegar in salad dressing and such. I told my doctor and she took me off it and put me on actos and then all my problems stopped.

I always take my pills with food, that's what I was told to do. I didn't get the chance today but plan on calling the pharmacist tomorrow.... thanks all!!

I have never passed the pills but if I do not eat something and take the pills on an empty stomach I will have problems with having the runs. So I have take one in the morning and one at night after eating something.

I have never seen it but yes! Ask the pharmacist as many medications do this!

I am actually going to do that, and check with my doctor too, I was just curious if anyone else has that situation.

Call your pharmacist and ask. S/he will know whether that's common, whether it's a problem, or whether it just has to do with the kind of capsule they use. Don't worry about it sounding weird; pharmacists are used to far stranger questions. It won't be the weirdest question s/he ever heard, and it probably won't be the weirdest s/he hears today!

I have a weird and somewhat embarrassing question for anyone who takes Meformin, the extended release formula. I can't take the regular formula anymore because it makes me incredibly sick. I started taking the ER formula and it appears that after taking them, hours later, they are passing through me whole. Does anyone else have this issue? Is this weird? I seem to be getting some benefits from the pills, my sugars are lower, but this seems strange to me.
