    Hello all,
    This may seem like a very innocent question .......but is there such a thing as a normal dosage of Metformin? I suppose I am needing to know what the maximum is before insulin is the next option. I was diagnosed as Type 2 at the start of this year and was prescribed 2000mg Metformin daily......building up over a few weeks from 1000mg to 1500mg and now 2000mg. My Doctor does not think that diet alone would do the trick. I realise that we are all different - but I'd like to know if others would consider this a high dosage. Many thanks.

    Hi Karen
    2000mg is the current maximum dose of metformin (although I'm on 2550mg and have been for 3 years - I'm asking my endocrinologist about this when I see her in March). There are other drugs which can be added to metformin or instead of it including gliclacide, januvia and victoza more info http://www.diabetes.co.uk/diabetes-medication/index.html
    So it isn't usually a straight trip from metformin to insulin.

    Hello Denise,
    Thank you so very much for your reply. I have been worried sick about this. I know that further down the line it may be inevitable - but I'd like to ward off that day by really trying to control things with diet, excercise and medication.
    Many many thanks.
