Oh My...

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Today marks day 7 on Metformin. That means I have to increase my dose by 500 mg to total 1000 mg. Next week I have to increase my dose to 1500 mg.

This medication is making me really sick. It's embarrassing to have to run to the bathroom every 2 hours at work. I wasn't able to work out this morning. I wasn't able to clean my house last night.

I pray to God that this will actually do something. It'd be terrible to go through all this for nothing.

    Thanks guys, for the nice comments. I haven't called the doctor. The side effects are normal. They're just HORRID.

Have you heard of the Kmart commercial, "ship your pants." Yep. That pretty much describes it.

Have a happy weekend everyone :)

    Have you called her? What does she say?
And is it having any positive effects at all?

In the meantime... emoticon

I'm so sorry.

    I don't know why your doctor is increasing so much so fast. I am still at 250 mg and my body is doing great with keeping up on my diet/exercise plus the little bit of Metformin I take. Plus no stomach issues after the first 2 weeks.

My fingers are crossed you feel better soon!!
