Hi all, I've just started on metformin 1 per day for a week, then increasing to 2 then 3. I hope it isn't just a coincidence but today (end of day 2) my appetite is very much reduced. I didn't finish the portion I thought I'd need for dinner (savoury turkey mince with broccoli and cheese) - might not sound like much to most people, but I've only ever not cleared my plate when I've been ill. I feel fine, just not hungry. It would be fantastic if this is how metformin works for me. I really need to lose weight, but I've always struggled with appetite and overeating/binge eating. The little bit I've read so far about metformin does suggest some people have a decreased appetite with it... is it too early to tell, and are there other side effects I might notice as I increase the dose?
