Type 2 diabetes and high dosage of Metformin


Gold Member
Is there any diabetics here on a high dosage of Metformin? I am on 2,500mg a day and have noticed a sort of Xenical-type effect with them which never occured with lower dose. I'd heard a nurse ages ago saying they can help with weight loss but didn't ask how. I'm wondering is this how? Seems to happen after eating high fat just like with Xenical.

Hi Lyn
My sister was put on metformin to loose weight because she has PCO and she cant loose weight but she wouldn`t be as heavy as me. I have got type 2 diabetes and was on metformin but the ones I was getting was like horse tablets and I kept being sick with them so they put me on PIOGLITAZONE +METFORMIN TABS 15mg +850mg twice a day plus DIAMICRON 80mg one twice a day . But I`v never had any side effects with them .
i should of said me and my daughter has PCO`s as well but I never lost weight on metformin .
