Re: Early side effects of Metformin......how long?
I did not see this post before making my comment on your other post.
One week is really a short time in the treatment sense.
I do not know how long, bottom line. Sorry about that.
Metformin does work very well to bring down test results. But, and there is always a 'but' in health treatments, it is only part of the program. It does not do any good to judge what was prescribed, your doctor would not be doing you any favors waiting to make the decision that he/she did. You should approach this with everything you can. Some people can turn around diabetes in the early stages. This is your only "early notice", take advantage of this and be very proactive.
