Hi it's me again! So as some of you know I started Metformin on December 5. Well, I didn't have any side effects until a few weeks ago. Oh boy! Any tips on how I can lessen the severity of some of the side effects? My worst problem is the cramping/bloating/"runs" I am also wondering why it took so long for the side effects to take place? Here I was thinking I was one of the lucky ones who wouldn't get any side effects. Boy was I wrong. It only took 2 months to show. Bummer. So, any ideas or tips that worked with you?
