My doctor gave me the option. She said try taking them all at once, but if that does not work for you, split them into two times a day. Hope that helps!

I take 1000mg of the Met ER once a day right before I go to bed with my 24 units of Lantus ... i don't have any issues with doing it that way myself

Your doctor or pharmacist should have told you to split them up! You definitely must not be feeling good! My doc told me that I should definitely take them at breakfast and dinner to make sure that I don't get the icky feeling!
I would if I were you!

I have been on Met ER for 6 months. I am on 2000 or 4 pills. I take them all at dinner. I have read where some people are taking them 2 times a day to break them up. Can you do this??? I hate taking all 4 at once cause I get sick some days :(
