Why Is Metformin To Be Taken With Food?

Answer

Pablo-

Hello! You don't want to puke, like Frank said:) and you do not want to mess up the lining in your stomach. Have you ever tried taking metformin w/o food? it's nasty. You are also taking a risk in having hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). If you don't take it with food try using milk.
