Re: Best Time To Take Metformin?

You should take it either with breakfast or dinner. The thing is you should take it with the same meal every day. I don't recommend taking it without food, it can really mess up your stomach.

Re: Could this be causing my problems?

What kind of work do you do? Many neck problems stem from job related activities. Things like working at a keyboard all day can cause problems.

Re: Cervical epidural

My doc tried a cervical epidural last winter. I got no relief what so ever. Now he just does the facet joint injections. They are not 100% effective but better than nothing.
