I think the metformin HCL 1000 mg ER is too much for me. It made me sick to the point i couldnt function. So i started taking half the dosage. 500 mg per day. I cut the pill in 2 and take a half per day. Will this hurt me?

Hello, Sally! How are you?

This is a time released medication, so it should not be cut, that could cause you to get too much of the medication at once. If you have issues taking the higher dose, your doctor can prescribe a 500mg dosage for you to try.

What are you current blood sugar readings?

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Are you on any other medications?

If your doctor doesn't want to prescribe a lower dose of this one, there are also several others available to treat diabetes that you could ask them about trying.
