It gave me non-stop diarrhea and severe stomach cramps. Dr lowered dose and the symptoms still persisted aggressively. Felt like I had severe flu all the time. I quit taking it and Dr put me on something else that works much better.

I have IBS and Metformin aggravated my symptoms to the point that I had to take an anti-dirreha medication which caused constipation and aggravated my hemorrhoids. I never could get a good balance between the two and I finally stopped taking the Metformin. I have gained all my weight back and my doctor wants to put me back on Metformin, but I just can't live like that.
