    What are the side effects that come from diabetes medication?

    I have only taken Metformin, and I did not have any side effects whatsoever.

    @Kaliyuaziz welcome to the forum

    There are many types of diabetes medication. You have posted this question in a section discussing metformin. Are you asking about metformin and would you like the thread title changed?

    I have tried most meds. I’m back on metformin slow release now. And there no better than normal metformin. Which both give me a bad tummy.
