Hi, I recently started Metformin and I have a few questions about interactions. I've looked online, but I have found conflicting information. Any help would be appreciated!
1) Are there any hard and fast rules about drinking on Metformin? I had 3 beers on Friday evening and felt terrible yesterday. If I drink, should I skip my evening dose? I'm concerned about lactic acidosis, but I don't really know how likely it is.
2) I'm training for a 10 mile race, which involves pretty intense running. Should I back off while getting used to Metformin? I don't want to pass out while exercising or anything.
3) I'm not diabetic, so I don't monitor my blood sugar. Should I monitor my carbs more closely? Do I need to cut back or space them out differently?
