    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    If Metformin is passing through undissolved, does that mean it is not helping my system?

    Sherry if you are taking the Extended Release one it contains a shell like wrapping on the Metformin which can be seen when you go. See it dissolves in your system and you are getting it.

    When I was on Metformin XR that always happened to me, some manufactures of the regular Metformin can also be seen, you should not panic this can be a normal thing to see once in awhile.
