I just started metformin a little over a week ago. My doctor has put me on a schedule that increases my dosage every week, until I get up to my regular dosage, which will be 2550 mg per day. From some of the postings I've read, my dosage seems to be a lot higher than other people's. I worry because I know that a lot of people have had side effects from it and I am only taking 850 mg per day right now and I'm already feeling the nausea. I was wondering what people's dosages are or if their doctor's allowed them to scale back on their daily dosage if the side effects were to severe. I want this medicaiton to be successful, but I have heard so many bad things about it.
