I got very sick from metformin one arm at a time would go numb. Kept switching arms and lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks. I felt anxious. I told my doctor I couldn't take it and stopped after giving it 4 months. Arms are totally fine after it got out of my system. I take nothing and my doctor is okay with that. Last A1c was 7.1 before that was 7.3. Good luck!

Hi, we're Tarah... we've been on Metformin ER but had various problems with it starting a couple years ago. It was bad enough that we had a colonoscopy only to realize that it was the medication that started causing GI issues despite having been on it (with OK A1c) for years.

So now, after 2 years of problems, our A1c is now at its highest (8.7%) and we've switched to glyburide.

We requested our doctor put us on a CGM (Freestyle Libre) as we cannot check regularly otherwise (we have a very difficult time with lancets) and are planning on using this as a reminder for ourselves. It's good seeing the direct consequences of the food we eat. (We also deal with significant BED issues)

So far it's great, but it's only been active since 7 this morning!
