What is the best time to take metformin?
I have to take metformin 500mg everyday. What is the best time to take metformin if I take it once a day? breakfast, lunch or dinner? or is it better to cut pill in half and take 250mg at one meal and the other 250mg at another meal. I usually exercise at 7pm and eat more carbohydrates at breakfast than at dinner

Hello,

when are your blood sugars highest?  If you have dawn phenomenon (high blood sugars in the morning / fasting) then take it at night.  IF they are after eating and fasting is ok, then take it in the morning.

You could also ask your doctor about this.

Hope this helps.
