I had IBS back before I came down with diabetes. Since the problem with my bowels started when I first went on Metformin four years ago and then stabilized, and since the problems became worse when I went on the Lipitor three months ago, common sense of course said that I should go off the Metformin. So that's what the doctor decided to do. And increased the dosage of Diamicron to compensate.
The only good news is that the blood tests showed the diabetes is pretty well controlled. Now that the meds are switching again, all that could change, of course.
Nothing more to say about this...other than: I suppose I can't blame SAD for all of this, huh?
