    Metformin hcl vs metformin er

    Okay, I know the difference, one is the extended release. What I want to know from those taking both drugs is how they work best for you. I quit taking my met because it was doing nothing, but, I just noticed that it is the HCL and not the ER and I am pretty sure you are supposed to take HCL with meals and ER as directed like in the morning and at night. My doc dosed me like I was taking ER, so, if that is the case is it possible that it would not work as well? I have been experimenting, I have been taking that drug, 500mg before meals with my insulin and I am crashing almost every time. Is it just dumb luck for a few days or is it possible that I was taking that met wrong all along?

    I take Metformin HCL. I take 2550 mg , 3 times a day. I don't take it at meals. I think the only reason they tell you that is to avoid some of the stomach problems. Metformin accumulates in your system so I'm not sure if the timing makes a lot difference. Since I take such a large dose I have experimenting with timing. I take it when I first wake up, around 11 am in the morning and last thing at night before bed. I asked my doc about switching to the ER but the max is only 2000 which he felt wouldn't help me much. When I first started with 500 mg it did nothing for me. I raised it to 1000, then 1700 and now 2550.

    Interesting about your doc's comments about the ER. So 3 times a day for you works good. Okay. Thanks for the info. I am going to continue experimenting with it. I have a ton of it right now. So far only 2000mg a day is what I am alloted. I am hoping I can take it differently than my doc prescribed and cut back a bit on the insulin.
    Thanks for your response Jeanne.
