I haven't been on it in a while because my life is completely disrupted by the gastrointestinal side effects. This seems to happen to me even when I fast. Previously, I was on it for 7 years and the gastro stuff never seemed to go away. Do you use any other prescriptions to manage your symptoms? If not, do you use supplements? What kind of results have you gotten from these?
I desperately need to lose weight for health reasons. I am all about body neutrality, so I just want to feel better and be able to do more in the body I'm in. I need to lose half of my body weight (according to BMI things, how accurate this is, I am not sure) which is an intimidating feat for me, but I am hoping to try something new. My GP told me Metformin is my only option and that there's nothing else he can do for me.
