    Metformin - Before, After or With food?

    When is the best time to take Metformin? I was told originally to take it after food. I'm on 3x500mg a day. When I told my doctor that I don't eat breakfast, he said take one in the morning on an empty stomach anyway.
    I've recently started taking my metformin half way through my meals. This seems to stop the nasty side effects that you get with metformin, but I *think* it's reducing the effectiveness of the drug.
    Now I've read that taking it an hour or two BEFORE eating is the best way to take the drug. The same source (lost in my browser history now.... ) said that taking it with food can decrease the effectiveness of Metformin. (Mt Dad is also on Met - it was HIS doctor that recomended taking it WITH food. Mine recomended taking it AFTER food).
    Anyone got any experience of this? What it would mean is that I would have approx. 1000mg in my system (1 met when I wake up, and 1 before lunch) before I've eaten anything. I eat lunch at around 12:00 (lo-carb, of course!).

    The advice on the packet is to take it with food to reduce the side effects, having said that I take my breakfast and evening meal metformin anything up to an hour before I actually eat. I say this with particular pleasure - I no longer take a lunchtime metformin - but when I did, it was with the first bite.
    I can't say that I've noticed any difference in readings no matter when I take the metformin, but have to say that I thought that food would interfere with absorption of the metformin - so have always taken it either very early in the meal or before eating.
    Regards, Tubs.

    Hi, I am new here and I have to say I just followed the instructions and take one after my evening meal. I don't appear to have had any side-effects apart from a weird gurggling stomach and bad wind (although my kids say that's nothing new)
