    I read today of possible side effects that I may have or had, but didn't realize they were side effects. Also, as of today, I cannot even get this liquid form of Metformin due to "production problems" per manufacturer. I cannot swallow the big pills and the liquid was a god-send. Now- not available til maybe June!

    I have a hard time swallowing pills and since Metformin can't be crushed I asked for an alternative. This is great. If I take it with a meal or snack there are side affects (effects?).

    Comment from: Dede, 65-74 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: August 11

    I took the generic form TEVA of metformin HCL for one month. After a week I (and the rest of my family) noticed a change in my personality. It was like PMS only 100% times worse. I am a 65 year old female and have been over menopause for years. I have never taken any HRT. After three weeks a I discontinued metformin and within a day or two was back to my old self. I was told by a friend this medicine is also used by some doctors for infertility problems. What in the world is in this drug? It should be taken off the market. The "rages" I experienced were almost to the point of being dangerous to my self as well as to my family. This is a serious side effect.
