    Metformin vs Metformin ER

    Is there much difference in the GI side effects of the ER form of metformin??? I'm having difficulty with the diarrhea problems taking the 500mg regular form twice a day. Will there be less problems with ER?
    Thanks for info.

    I can't refer you to specific studies or anything, but when my endocrinologist put me back on metformin (along with my insulins), he specifically mentioned that he was going to use the ER version as it has fewer "stomach issues" than the older version. My issues were nausea and vomiting from the regular, but I have not had any of that , not even mild discomfort with the ER. I think it would be worth trying. Every body is different. What works for me might not work for you. Maybe your doctor can offer you a sample so you can try it for a week or so and see if there is any difference. That way you wouldn't have to start a second prescription if there was no difference.
