    Hi I didn't find this thread when I searched! Thanks for the tag @GrantGam1337

    It gives me relief to know other people have also experienced different reactions to different brands.

    It's not so easy searching for posts, although they are there.

    The most important thing is that you're in the right community for help with your/our condition. The people on this forum are truly smart and experienced:)

    I genuinely thought I had my diabetes well under control until I came here. When you share experiences, you move forward:)

    Keep us posted with how you get on, get better soon!

    Hi this is a very old thread and most of the participants haven't been around for a couple of years..
    Maybe start one of your own with a question re metformin.. or have a look at the search results on the forum (there are lots!).

    No worries.. I changed what I ate and ditched metformin altogether.. I had very unpleasant side effects.
