i take glumetza 500 mg extended release, the only side effect i am experiencing is a very gassy stomach, other then that, i notice a change on how i feel. i dont get that low sugar feeling. I guess i would rather have gas then feel bad.

I have only been taking this medication for a week but have had nauseu and diarhea for a few days. Hoping this subsides. Energy is up though.

Was taking metformin 1000 twice a day, but not the extended release. Had severe diahrrea every single day for 7 or 8 months. Dr. switched me to the timed release pill and I have not had any more diahrrea one single time since I started taking it. I am so happy.

First dose with dinner last night, within 15 min. I had severe dizziness followed by excessive vomiting...both of which lasted over 4 hours. Could not hold my head up or keep my eyes open. It was very scary! Have a call into my doctor.

I had taken gluclaphage when i was younger and stopped taking it due to diarreah issues. Glumetza doesnt have that effect for me, I take 1000mg release, but if i eat after about 7pm my blood sugars high in the morning ranging from 120-148.
