I gained 30 pounds on metformin, with absolutely no change in diet and
exercise. My doctor refused to admit that it might be the problem. I
changed doctors, and the new one told me that one of the side effects of
metformin is weight gain. He put me on a combination of glyberide and
victoza, and so far I've taken off 20 those pounds, again with no change in
diet and exercise. I feel better already, and am looking forward to taking
off more weight. Hope to get it down enough that I can get off the meds
