Anybody using Metformin as a weight loss aid?

Is it effective? How are you coping with the side effects?

  • I'm on the stuff because of diabetes. Now if it has any weight loss properties then I need to have a talk with my physician because it is not working. lol But I guess it could be effective for those who do not have diabetes? I would always talk to the doctor before starting any exercise or dieting regimen especially if it involves diet products.

  • I was on metformin for a time, but not for weight loss. I did lose weight but I think it was more depression related to the situation for which I was taking the metformin. I would not recommend it unless you need it for diabetes or fertility issues.

  • my mother and mother in law both take it for diabetes and my mil is obese and my mom is a little overweight....it's obviously not for weight loss, as long as they've been on it neither of them have lost weight
