Hi, I'm on Metformin, specifically: Glucophage/Prolonged Release, Metformin Hydrochloride. When I was on the previous stuff, the ordinary Metformin, the doc said "no alcohol". I've read the leaflet for this version, and that is a little vague about alcohol. So I wondered if anyone else here has the same medication and if so, can you have the occasional glass of red wine? only I haven't had any since December last year, and I really, really miss it.
