    I would be very surprised if you developed neuropathy because you stated Metformin.

    I have been on this medication for many years without experiencing any side effects. From what I have read about Metformin, it has been around for a very long time and has been proven to be one of the safest medication.

    One of the effects of diabetes is neuropathy and Metformin helps with diabetes, so I would find it very surprising that it was the cause, but then I am not a doctor.

    Been using Metformin for 8 years now without any issues. I strongly suggest that you visit your doc and get the problem addressed by somebody in the medical profession.

    Good luck with it.

    Neuropathy has nothing to do with metformin, it is a known complication of diabetes. If your diabetes is not well-controlled then you are more likely to develop it. Have you definitely been told you have neuropathy? What makes you think you are allergic - neuropathy is never a result of an allergy.

    Dear June, first of all it is Metformin not Medformin and it is quite strange that it has adverse effects like neuropathy as you mentioned. i didn't heard that. In most of the cases, it is given to manage the type 2 diabetes. We should know about Diabetes medications – drugs at glance.

      Hey Anderson1959, June posted on here to try and assuage a worry that she/he has, not to have her English corrected - not that I would suggest that you are best placed given the grammatical errors in your post.

    Hi June62506, neuropathy is an unfortunate side effect of this horrible disease rather than a side effect of the Metformin drug ( I think) and I also feel that your best course of action is to discuss the problem with somebody in the medical profession and ideally your own doctor.

    Hope it is resolved quickly for you - best wishes.

    Been on metformin for a couple of years. No problems with them.
