I am on metformin ER twice a day to lose weight. My cycles regulated on its own although I still have problems with excess hair. Is there anyone else out there who is NOT losing weight on metformin?
I will admit that I don't always take the full dosage. Between being a full time mom, student and working I don't always have time to eat and usually don't eat until around 2 in the afternoon. These pills make me REALLY sick if i don't eat first so usually I take one pill at night after dinner. Am I not losing weight because i'm not taing taking the full dose? I see other women saying they've lost 40lbs etc. I lose and gain back the same 5 lbs for the past 6 months.
