: : I am a newly diagnosed diabetes patient. My physician has of course prescribed dietary controls, exercise, dietary supplements and medicaton. The medication is glycophage and I am wondering if any others have experienced the same side-effects as I have for the past week. Specifically, stomach cramps and SEVERE diarrhea. I am not sure if this is normal or not. If you have any comments I would like to hear them. Thank you.....
: Side effects this severe are something you need to report to your doctor right away. He will probably want to try a different medication. Anytime you exprierence more than just a little discomfort from a medication it warrents reporting to the doctor so he can decide whether to change your medication or not.
