Does Metformin cause constipation? I was having the opposite problem for the first week or so and now I am constipated. It bothers me so much that I want to quit taking it. Any advice??? Thanks.

I don't think Metformin is the one to blame. As JT replied it causes it.

 

      Maybe too much cheese?

I have also had the reverse, soften stools especially after breakfast - 2x500mg metformin, 2 scrambled eggs with ham and a small mandarin orange with 2 cups of coffee. Talk to your Dr. because I have heard from others that constipation is never a problem.
I have no idea if Metformin has anything to do with it. But I take 2 big Tbsp of Benefiber in my morning coffee and that does the trick!
Few drops of Almond Oil with milk will help you a lot.
