Hello, JJ! How are you?

Apparently, there is a shortage of the raw ingredients required to manufactured Metformin, so some manufacturers have been unable to maintain and distribute a supply. The situation is expected to resolve, but there's no way of knowing for sure when it will occur.

Have you tried the name brand? You might want to ask your doctor about writing for it, so you can't be given a generic, at least while this issue continues.

The FDA classifies Metformin as being an oral antidiabetic medication that is most commonly used to help lower and control blood sugar. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia.

Is there anything else I can help with?
