Hi all. I am currently taking 500mg of metformin per day. Next week, I will increase it to a 1000mg per day. I seem to have a decreased appetite since starting it again. I was on it, but stopped in Feb because of intestinal issues. Has the happened to anyone else on metformin? Thanks for you help.

Hang in there...I have been on Metformin for 2 years now (500 mg twice a day), then 500 3xday. At first it was HELL...constantly in the restroom...couldnt even eat a sunflower seed! after about a month i reduced back to 500 2xday. It took some time, but eventually my body got used to it and the side effects slowly dwindled. I have found that eating before taking helps significantly...i know you dont want to but you have to eat something...something heavy! it will help...promise!

Good luck love!

That's great to know I've been on 500 ml 3x a day now and I've found I have to eat 3 meals a day to take it!! I'm feeling so much better now but still running to the bathroom a lot.
