I was wondering if anyone else feels uneasy about taking Metformin for gestational diabetes for pregnancy. I did some research and found that the FDA will not at this time say that it is safe for pregnancy, only that it appears not to affect animals. I did a lot of hard work to get my blood sugars down to almost acceptable levels. Only a few of them were a few points higher. This medication is making me nauseous and sick to my stomach as well as very tired. I am thinking (and praying) about coming off of it and really sticking it to my diet to get these sugars down. It is concerning to me that they say that Metformin should not be given to a child under 10 and then they say that it is okay for babies (?????)
I am very leary of medication and drugs in general (I usually go to a Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor) and I am confused about what the Western Docs are telling me. Can anyone share their experience with this???
