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'm going to the doctor this morning about mine. I can't handle this rash any longer, it's driving me crazy.

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?
