Metermine 30 mg and 40 mg side effects

Metermine is available in 30 mg and 40 mg capsules.

Metermine is an effective weight loss drug. And like any effective drug, it has adverse effects. Mostly, they have a weak form and gradually disappear. Or you may have no side effects.

But you should be aware of these adverse effects to see a doctor at the first symptoms. And the doctor will decide whether to continue the treatment with the same dose or reduce it. Or he may advise you to stop taking the drug and try to get rid of excess body weight in another way.
