My doctor is trying to get me off insulin and added metformin two months ago. He started me with 1,000 mg a day and after a month raised it to 2,000 mg a day. I have had massive, explosive diarrhea every single day. I keep reading the diarrhea lasts only two weeks but mine does not get better, not even decreasing the dosage(I'm now down to 500 mg a day). Are there people who just can't take the stuff? The met really stabilized my glucose but I would rather stay on the syringe than live like this.
I am type 2, take 18 units Humulin 70/30 twice a day.
