I thank my doctor every day for this medication.This has lowered my numbers tremendously, I havent hit over 120 in over a week. I have very minimal gas...no diarrhea, and I work out just fine.

Just started taking glumetza as I was having trouble with another diabetis med. I am experiencing stomach trouble with slight diaarhia so will switch to taking it in the evening. Hoping it will work for me.

Terrible! Made me feel like crud! I lost my energy, my stomach was always icky and I felt like I was constantly going to throw up. I also felt increased anxiety. I took it for about a month and quit - this was two years ago...I still haven't felt the same since then!!!!!

Been taking for 3 weeks. Severe diarhhea, gas BUT I can't believe how clear my head now is. Not feeling "ditzy" now that I am taking the drug. My doctor said to take in the Am with a meal but all the drug info says take in the evening with a meal and I have switched to that so that I am home if my bowel erupts. My grandmother, father and now I have type II diabetes...I am not overweight but my family history keeps my blood sugars very high.

I took glumetza for five weeks. I suffered tremendous muscle pain for four of those weeks. I realized the pain was caused by my taking glumetza because this was the only change in my medication. I stopped taking the drug and phoned my doctor. She also informed me to stop taking glumetza. The only problem I have now is I still suffer from muscle pain. I didn't take the medicine long enough to determine how effective is was in lowering my H1c. I hope no one else experienced my pain and discomfort.

I have prediabeties and poly cistic ovarian syndrom. My doctor started me on metformin which tore my stomach up, then he switched me to Glumetza, a time released version of the metformin. I have my body back for the first time since puberty! I've been on it for 8 months now, occasionally I become hypoglycemic (mostly when I'm running around all day and don't eat right) but I carry glucose tablets and they do great at taking care of the hypoglycemia. I haven't had a high blood sugar in the last 5 months and my doctor thinks it may have gotten rid of my prediabeties, along with diet change of course.
