Hi there,

 

I just got prescribed Metformin and wanted to know if I can continue Myo-inositol as well.  Just wondering if anyone is taking both and has asked their naturopath or doctor about it.

 

Thanks,

Carline.

Hi Carline, 

 

I was taking myo-inositol before I was prescribed Metformin.  I currently take 1500mg of Metformin and still take the mho-inositol and haven't had any adverse effects.  I try to take them at least an hour apart from each other though, just in case.
