    There is one big aide affect that is never mentioned though. DH was recently diagnosed with b12 deficiency and research has me worried. There is evidence to show that metformin use can deplete b12 stores. It's something worth getting checked with you gp and keeping an eye one because b12 deficiency is pretty serious.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone
    I just came across this thread and it answered some questions for me.
    I had to take b12 injections for a year or so before my levels came back up because they were quite low.

    I might get them rechecked now before starting met.

    Sorry to thread hijack.

    I'm on metformin as of 2 days ago and feel fine. Do the side effects take awhile to present or did you ladies get them straight away?
