I was diagnosis with Type2 on July 2009. Doctor asked me to take Metfrmin 1000 Mg twice a day. I continued it for 1 month. After that I stopped to take this medicine and controlled my blood sugar by diet and excercise. I had HBA1C was 5.8 in September, 2011 end. It was working fine till 1 month back. In last month I had FBS - 130 and after meal - 170.
I started to take metformin plain ( 500 mg ) after breakfast. It controlled my sugar but I think I have side effects of it. My stomach is used to upset, heart burn when I started to take metformin. Also In the night, I used to have pain in my both arms.
I am in New york for 6 months and I don't have any precription of any medicine.
Can someone suggest how can I get rid of these side effects ?
