    My BG was 2.5 ( that is 42) on metformin. Anyone had similar problems . I was dizzy and could not walk . I had honey nearby so it helped .

    Keep testing, if you are having hypos on metformin then you need to consult your hcp asap. If it is to blame then obviously it doesn't sound like the right thing for you to be on, but I'd get onto your hcp and discuss it.

    I'm assuming you are T2?
