My dosage of Metformin has recently been changed to (2) 1000mg tablets per day (taken with food) from (3) 500mg tablets per day.
My early morning BG readings (fasting) are generally the highest. What is the best times for me to take the metformin?
Hello! Speaking from my own experience, I use to take metformin 3x a day w/ breakfast, lunch and dinner. Metformin has to be taken w/ food or your stomach will hurt and it will also help you manage your bg's; that's what my Physician ordered me to do. You should talk to your physician to see when your medication should be taken. If your morning fasting bg's are the highest you could be experiencing the dawn phenomenon. There was an article written by David Mendosa called, "Taming the Dawn Phenomenon". The article talks about the dawn phenomenon and tells you how to tame it.
