Recent studies indicate that metformin declines cognitive functions. Should I stop taking it or take it less?

My dr. Made my dose higher of metformin now I'm taking 1500mg will this help me get pregnant if so how long will it take to get pregnant.

Inform your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: Hi. Yes, many drugs. Excellent new-ish drugs (still more expensive) are GLP-1 drugs (Victoza, Byetta, Bydureon), SGLT-2 inhibitors (Invokana & Farxiga). Insulin, a great drug!
