> Have you tried Metformin for weight loss?

Thanks for the reply. I have not. I have read the studies and metformin was not effective for weight loss (even topamax, but pdoc will give them despite the lack of efficacy). FDA approved weight loss meds are Qsymia, Contrave. Alli. They all cause minimal weight loss and must be taken for life. Some can worsen BP and anxiety with phentermine.

If my HgA1c went up, I would consider meformin. But I hate adding meformin with my other 5 meds. So base line, I need Nardil and Klonopin. But due to insomnia from Nardil, I have to add ambien. And to lower the dose of Nardil from 60 to 50 mg, I added low dose lithium and Lamictal. So due to Nardils side effects I add 3 meds for a total of 5 meds. Metformin would be 6th med with no evidence that it causes significant weight loss.

Do know any different from what I said above? Thank you
