    I was started on Metformin 500mg twice a day in August. My sugar levels started coming down but still high in the mornings. The doc increased me to 750mg twice a day. I'm now getting pre meal readings of between 5 and 6.5, but morning readings are always higher still. Should I increase dose further or are these acceptable levels? TFR.

    No one on the forum can tell you what dosage to take. This is something you need to discuss with your doctor. Those levels are pretty good and dawn phenomenon accounts for higher morning readings.
