Most people start with a small dose to avoid stomach discomfort (½ or 1 tablet per day with food, slowly increasing to what has been prescribed). AgelessRx prescribes the Extended Release (ER) version to reduce stomach discomfort.

Note: Metformin is commonly stopped a week before any surgical procedure or medical diagnostic requiring contrast, such as a CT scan.  If you are unsure, please ask the doctor ordering the test or procedure.
