I'm on 1000mg Metformin a day but I often forget to take both pills - I am good at remembering to take meds at home morning and night, but not so good at this when I'm at work. Also, unless I take Met with a meal, It makes me feel nauseaus and weak. But I am trying to take it consistently. Recently I started a med for the severe depression that I struggle with. It's Olanzapine orodispersable tablets (they dissolve on the tongue). This med has done wonders for my mood and for that I'm very grateful. However it makes me feel crazily hungry and it is known for causing weight gain My psych specialist is not very holistic in his approach. He didn't really care about the weight gain and merely told me to watch what I eat (!). So far I have not seen a diabetes specialist but I bet that if I did, he/she would not really care about the mood disorder and merely tell me to watch my depression. I actually had a gynae specialist once say that to me. So since I appear to be the only one in my supposed care "team" who cares about my overall health, what should I do? It occurred to me that if Met helps with insulin resistance then taking an extra 500mg a day might blunt the worst of this nasty weight gain. But I also know there can be such a thing as taking too much Met. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas that might help? Obviously I will discuss with one or more of my doctors before actually changing anything. They don't really like me thinking for myself, let alone treating myself. THanks.
