Important Safety Information & Common Side Effects

Most Common side effects of metformin: 

  • Gastrointestinal discomfort (diarrhea, nausea, bloating)

  • Reduction of Vitamin B12 levels, please supplement Vitamin B12

Most people start with a small dose to avoid stomach discomfort (½ or 1 tablet per day with food, then increasing to what has been prescribed on the bottle). We commonly use the extended release (ER) version of metformin to reduce stomach discomfort.

Note: Please stop taking metformin a week before any surgical procedure or medical diagnostic requiring contrast, such as a CT scan.  If you are not sure if you need to stop metformin, please ask the doctor ordering the test or procedure.
