A member asked:

I am(25yr)using metformin 500mg daily once since 1 month due to high blood sugar. now its normal. follwing diet &regular exercise. can i stop med nw?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

No: There are many beneficial effects to metformin other than just blood sugar. The most effective dose, however, is 1000 mg twice daily. Increase the dose in stages, not all at once. Discuss w/your doctor. 500 mg only lasts less than 12 hours.
