What is the country of origin for METFORMIN HCL 500MG tablet SOLCO 43547-0248-50? Is it approved by American standards of manufacturing? My pharmacy, in the last year, no longer has Metformin HCL in its warehouse - too expensive, I understand. Therefore I am unable to get my prescription filled there. My problem is that I cannot - literally - stomach any other manufacturer's inactive ingredients. The diarrhea is continuous - all day long, and into the night. I'm drinking as much water as I can to prevent dehydration, but it comes out as fast as I can get it in. My pharmacy seems not to care whether or not I get the SOLCO manufactured medicine. They are going to begin using THEIR medicine of choice, regardless of what it does to my intestinal tract. Their attitude is: "SO WHAT?" I have one pharmacist there who is doing all he can to help me out. He's found 500 pills for me, which will last until the end of June, as I can't get them until the end of January. After that, who knows what medicine is going to be flushed down my drain on its way to the sewer pipe? Does The Shadow know? I sure as hell don't!!!

Ask your physician to write the preferred generic manufacturer name on the Rx and a note on the Rx to dispense only that manufacturer's medication. there may be a variance in cost so check with your pharmacy before you have the Dr write it.

DJ's suggestion is a good one, you can also ask your doctor about writing it as brand medically necessary, so they can no longer give you the generics, but only the name brand.

Diarrhea, however, is a typical side effect of Metformin, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and hypoglycemia.

When my ex husband was on it, diarrhea for him was only intermittent, but I know it drove him crazy, when it happened.

How much fiber do you take in daily? That might also be contributing.

Are you on any other medications?
