Q.

Frequent urination on metformin

I urinate frequently on 500 mags slow release metformin including once at night. Is this OK ?I managed type 2 diabetes for years with diet. Have been on metformin for a year. Diet not so strict now. No other serious side effects apart from frequent urination- up to 6 or7 times in 24 hrs.

Hi

The frequent urination isn't from the metformin. It may because your glucose levels are higher or you have a bladder infection, so I suggest having these tested
