Metformin vs Berberine for Diabetes

The only issue I see with berberine is something Stewie told me to be careful about/aware of before suggesting a family member start using berberine..

"I'd be careful with Berberine if he's on anything that's a prescription thats substrate of CYP2D6 or 3A4. Which a lot of drugs are metabolized through those pathways."


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4898966/

"Repeated administration of berberine (300 mg, t.i.d., p.o.) decreased CYP2D6, 2C9, and CYP3A4 activities. Drug-drug interactions should be considered when berberine is administered."

Would you happen to know if metformin has the same negative drug interactions as berberine?

Is Metformin prescription only?

Where can one purchase it? Asking for a friend...

What do you think? You and your so called friend need to learn how to use Google. Stop being lazy

Any consensus on which brand of Berberine actually works? Is anyone on it that has anecdotally observed discernible results and as such, can recommend a brand? Thanks

Absolutely metformin without question
Type 2 and it helps my blood sugar massively allowing higher carb intake

This is what I take and am very pleased with it. You can order it directly from Amazon.

Used to take Metformin but now I prefer berberine. The effects are stronger as far as A1C, glucose, and lipids are concerned (in my experience) and there is no research suggesting it hinders exercise benefits (yet) like metformin does. Of course this can change again at any point but for the time being, it's berberine for me.

Would there be any point in combining the both of them together or just pick one or the other

That's a good question that has actually been brought up on the board before. I can't remember the exact explanation but, it was recommended to use either one or the other, but not both. Our member Stewie would be able to offer more details as to the reasons for this.

Any preferred brand?

I posted this in the other metformin thread but it's moved down and I see this is a better thread for it as it's more about berberine...

If guys have issues with metformin I would recommend looking into GlucoVantage Dihydroberberine. It's a superior form of berberine.
