thanks for the feedback.

I had stomach issues from Metformin when I first started it as well then I got more used to it. Will be taking an extended release version which hopefully should help

Update on this thread.

I have changed to Taking Metformin ER 500mg twice a day. And now I don't really have any side effects.

I believe it is helping me prevent any new weight gain that could be caused by the seroquel I am taking 400mg at night. I think it also decreases my appetite a bit so I don't get cravings for food.

I am using the Metformin in combination of a Nutrisystem diet and exercise and have lost more then 10 pounds so far.

I have lost 15-16 pounds since starting topamax. I want to lose another 20.
