I'm on Metformin HCL ER. My dose the first week was 500 mg. Today marks day one of week two, to be increased to 1000 mg. Next Thursday, the dose will be increased to 1500 mg.
I take it mid-meal at lunch, and I will soon take it mid-meal at dinner.
The side effects are killing me. You know what I'm talking about... It's really embarrassing at work! I'm afraid I may have to ask to work from home for a couple of days as I adjust to the increase in dose.
People say these side effects subside with time. Is it true?
I'm not going to stop taking it. I've struggled ridiculously hard and I cannot lose weight through meticulous diet, exercise and supplement taking. I've been working my butt of 5 years without results.
Please say that this gets easier, and that it works. I haven't lost any weight yet- even though you'd think I would have all things considered...
