Taking all of my Metformin ER at night before bed has worked out really well for me. I’ve been on it for 12 years and I’ve been lucky to dodge the gastro issues.
I have actually found more people saying to take it at night. I got a job recently, and super worried about the whole having diarrhea. I’ve had one friend who took the regular Metformin have the diarrhea symptom and didn’t even realize/know they went.
I think diabetics can get some reasonable accommodations, but I’m not on insulin or anything. I’d have to speak to someone who’d know more on accommodations for diabetics (type 2 or type 1)
Just an FYI
“Take metformin exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
Take metformin with a meal, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Some forms of metformin are taken only once daily with the evening meal. Follow your doctor’s instructions.”
I take my ESR metformin with meals, no problem… Nancy50
