    Metformin Hydrochloride sex drive, medication, sleep
    Ever since i have started taking the medication I barely sleep 3-4 hours. I was a guy who could sleep through the night 8 hours without problem. Also no sex drive. Doctor does not seem to be concerned. Anyone else had similar experience?

    I would recommend taking the metformin right after eating. I don,t know why you are waiting 2 hours, but it should be taken with food. This may be also why you have a funny taste. I hope this information helps.
