What does the metformin tablet look like? One pharmacist filled it with a white oval shaped tablet with 93 0n one side and 48 on the other. When I got a refill it was a round tablet with the letter A on one side and the number 12 on the other?

My stupid mail order drug company has always sent 500mg Metformin tabs. I took two each morning and two each night. Without warning, they sent 1000mg tabs and by the time I noticed it, I had already taken two on Monday evening, then two more on Tuesday morning. I realized Tuesday evening what I had done and this was after fighting sleep all day long on Tuesday. Looking back, I know now that I was severly hypoglycemic, but at the time I had little brain function obviously! Does anyone know if there are long term effects from this?

I had the same problem (in the bathroom so often while at work that my co-workers were bugging me about it). This was TOTALLY solved by taking Metformin ER (“extended release”). You may want to ask your doctor to switch you over.
