Although maybe also give Metformin some more time? I'm on it too but have 0 side effects now, my system adjusted to it after a few weeks.

A tapered start is also a good idea with Metformin.

I'm tempted by alternative medications. The problem is, unless one can afford an expensive holistic health practitioner, we have no way of knowing how alternatives will interact with our medication. I once had a frightening experience with black cohosh. It interacted with the SSRI I was on. I fear that many people believe that herbal medicine is harmless, and that is not necessarily the case.
