Hi Rev - sounds like Metformin is one of those medications that just doesn't agree with you. There are a number of other oral med options your doc could prescribe. You could also have a change in your insulin requirements with or without the addition of a different oral med. Unfortunately, Diabetes is one of those "specific to the individual" type of conditions so, what works for one may not be the right combination for another.
I know how frustrating it can be but, if you're
open to trying some different regimens, you will eventually find the one that suits you. The important goal is getting and keeping your BGLs in range, whatever the dose of meds to help you do that. Of course, diet and exercise will help tremendously and may even reduce the number and/or level of meds you have to be on - but you know that, right
