I took Metformin for about a week. I broke out in a red itchy blistery rash on my face/hair line and ears. Stopped taking it. The doc didn't really have anything else other than diet and exercise. That happened almost 2 years ago now.

I take Metformin and don't find any side affects from it.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I am breaking out into hives on my stomach and sides now. I sent a message to my endo but she does not think its the medicine and wants me to see my pcp. I disagree, I think my metformin and spironolactone dose might be too high now that I've lost weight. It certainly is annoying being itchy all of the time!

I have been on Metformin since this past November. I have this rash on my legs and I was not sure what it's from. I thought I had a allergic reaction to something and would go away. But it still has not went away. I done some research and am starting to think that it may be due to the Metformin. Has this happened to anyone else?
