Glucophage Usage and Findings


I’ve been experimenting with glucophage (metformin) for the better part of 2 months now and I gotta say I don’t like it.
It’s supposed to harden up the muscles and help with fat loss while promoting muscle growth.

I’ve found that if I take it at night I can’t sleep throughout the night. I wake up in sweat every few hours.
If I take it in the morning it’s even worse, I am fatigued like hell and have no motivation for anything.

Then theres the sugar cravings. Oh my god, I was craving sugar like a mad man. once I was craving so bad I HAD to have a soda. “If I don’t have a soda”, I told myself, “i’m going to have a massive anxiety attack”

it did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. I pride myself on discipline and self control, but with this glucophage it was like it was all thrown out the window. I gained a lot of water weight and fat in only a few weeks.

As soon as I stopped all my symptoms went away.

I would not recommend this P.E.D.

it wasn’t horrible, it was just obnoxious.
