Metformin ER 500MG

Metformin ER 500MG

Can anyone tell me if they have ever been on METFORMIN ER 500 MG? I have been on this for a fee years now and no pregnancy results. I use to have a cycle monthly with this but have not seen a cycle since March of this year. If anyone has been on this, please tell me your experience.

I took metformin 1000mg for 2 years until I was 12 weeks pregnant in December 2019. Maybe your doseage should be reevaluated? I started off with 500mg twice a day, then after 2 months was moved up to 1000mg twice a day. The benefits definitely out way the side effects. I also took this, only one cycle and I was pregnant.

I’m pretty sure that is the one being recalled. I was on it a long time ago and it gave me terrible stomach problems. I stopped taking pills that doctors kept pushing due to side effects. This is just my personal opinion. Take care :)
