    Metformin vs Metformin XR

    I've been on Metformin 500mg x2 daily for the last month. Between my change in diet and the medication my numbers are looking real good. However I've never gotten past the GI issues. The stomach and upper GI issues went away after a few days. Unfortunately I deal with lower GI issues on an almost daily basis. The main problem is very painful cramping first thing in the morning. It will sometimes wake me up in the morning. I have tried a lot of things to improve my tolerance, but I fear this is as good as it's going to get. I would just suck it up, except it's really affecting my ability to work out in the morning. That's a problem.
    I've read that people who had problems with Metformin had a lot of success with Metformin XR. I'm up for a refill and would like to try XR, but I have some questions/concerns.
    1. I don't want to screw up my numbers. Will XR not be as effective? Anyone have any experience with this?
    2. I can't tell if there is a cost difference. Anyone know?
    3. Anyone have the opposite reaction? XR being worse?
    Thanks.

    Ask you doctor for the Metformin XR - it's the same, but coated so it's more long-lasting. People experience fewer side-effects on it. It should be very cheap in the generic form....

    My previous doctor was adamant that the XR version was not as effective or "bio available" as the non-XR version. I'm not sure if he was right or not, I still use the non-XR version.
