I have just started taking Metformin and am wondering how important it is to take it at the exact same time every day. My doctor told me to take it with my evening meal, but it is not always at the same time, and because it seems to give me quite a stomach ache if I don't eat it with food, it seems like the best course of action for me is to take it in the evening whenever I eat the most substantial amount of food.
I am also wondering how you would know if it's "working." Am I supposed to go back to the doc who prescribed it to me so that she can do some sort of blood tests? I've read on here that some people have had their levels adjusted, so I was wondering what the basis for that was.
I'm not due to see my doctor again any time soon and she didn't have me schedule a follow up, but if I need to make an appointment I will.
