When should I increase dose on metformin i'm taking 500mg with no side effects. Have to get to 1500mgs don't want to get the horrible side effects?

Is there a way to minimize the side effects of metformin? Im supposed to take 1500 but only take 1000 mg because im not managing the effects as it is.
None?: Thyroxine rightly used has no side effects. Metformin is generally well-tolerated but may make you feel strange; i'm told no 2 people have the same effects. Coumadin (warfarin) may make you bruise more easily and you should avoid tackle football, but if you bloodwork stays good, you will probably experience no side effects.

SGLT2 inhibitors: Hi. It's unfortunate that some folks just can't take metformin because of GI side effects, but it seems your doc did the right thing by stopping it.
