 I also take Metformin and have not noticed any adverse effects.  My sister has been on it longer than I have.

I take 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. It keeps my levels even unless I eat the wrong things.  My level this morning was 124.

i take metforim 500 mg 1 in the am 1 before dinner. trick for metforim take it 30 minutes before you eat. It seems to work best.
I never had any side effects but others in my family have mostly the poops if you eat wrong.

i found eating at the same time daily. eating 4 times a day and taking the metform 30 min before and the same time each day. works for me.
i eat really super good i do miss sweets and will induldge at times but very little pieces.
i hope it works for you I try and keep my test numbers as low as possible I seem to feel better.
what is your target for 2 hours after you eat.
Dont laugh mine is below 120 Most days I make it but try harder the days I dont
the chinese buffett is always the number breaker 140.
