Metformin Blues : Pcos : Active Low-carber Forums

i been on it almost 3weeks and iv lost aptetite and feelin really low got weighed at the docs today, have lost 3 kilos in a month and four days :D iv been feelin sick for the past 3 days constantly. i cant eat cause the thought of food makes me heave, and then i start to feel the hunger and cause i cant eat it makes me feel even sicker, then feel weak and faint and then get the headache. no wonder people lose alot of weight on it with these kinda side affects You have to give it time. I too felt sick to my stomach at first. I don't have any trouble now. Did your doctor start you out on a low dosage? He/she should have..... Make sure you take it with food - that helps. I take mine in the evening with my dinner. he put me on 1000mg a day to start then he sed wen them side affects hav worn off (wich they did after 3weeks) to start takin 1500mg a day and that was 2weeks i go and each day there getin worse Just stick with it! I know it makes you feel like crap. I started taking Metformin in October at 500mgs and every two or three weeks I was to increase all the way up to 2000mgs. It makes you really tired and weak but eventually it will go away. They only thing that has stuck with me Continue reading >>

    Hi there Maso! I have a feeling the questioner IS the healthcare provider. Maybe a clinical psychologist. My youngest has her Masters in this area and is also working on her Doctorate. Never received a grade below an A. Sorry, needed to brag about my kid for a moment. Hope you don't mind.
    Have a nice holiday!
    Oh I for got! You're in Peru. Have a nice weekend anyway!

    First I am aslo proud of your daughter (maybe she can treat me!!! )... your are not bragging... that is just the way it is ... congrats, you also have a nice Holiday.
    A bit of input (in the best way intenteded)... I am not in Peru. Do not get we wrong I have, nor will ever be a racist at all, I am in Chile and therefore I am Chilean... down here we have always have had disputes over nothing or somthing with Peruvians... some have migrated to Chile... mafia type, and as you know they are considered to be the second largest producers and distributors of cocaine... so for some years now, we do have a corrupt legal and police system, they have managed to spread this desease among our society... so here in Chile they are not very likeable. I thought you should know... since we are friends, I am not offended in anyway whatsoever my Darling.
    All my best wishes for you and your family have a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! and FOR AL US CITIZENS!

    I've posted in a separate thread about my new diagnosis. I've noticed since I've started taking Metformin that I've been oddly moody and a bit more depressed than normal this past week. Has anyone else has this experience. I'm doing some research online right now but wondered of other people's encounters with this drug.
    The last thing I want right now is to feel emotionally worse than I already do. Perhaps after some time, my body will get used to it. Could this just be a side effect of starting the new medication?

  2. fatmad

    I haven't noticed any emotional problems per se with metformin. Most people have gastric problems for a little while, Butter Butt and I get leg pain from it after a while, but mine is manageable as long as I take a b complex supplement. The B's and maybe some vitamin D may be helpful.
    Another reason for emotional ups and downs may be the new diagnosis, ( stages of grieving) and dietary changes, so good supplements may be helpful.
    Metformin doesn't really lower blood sugar directly, so low blood glucose shouldn't be the problem unless your diet is giving you swings in blood sugar.

    Fatmad, Thanks for your thoughts. The supplements is a great idea.

    I think it is about dementia. Her brain is just not interpreting hunger signals correctly. What is her weight like? Could she afford to gain a little weight?
