    Hi
    I have been trying to follow a low carb high fat diet but I havent been strict enough and have seen a rise in my BS levels . As a consequence I have thought it best to resume taking Glucophage SR 1000 mg x 2 daily. The result have been cravings and significant weight increase.Has any one experienced anything similar?

    I think it is more likely that it is the carbs addiction causing the cravings and the weight gain rather than the tablets.

    It's highly unlikely to be the Glucophage SR

    I am taking exactly the same as you, but I'm too thin and have to struggle to keep my weight from going down further.
