Thanks for sharing your concern with us.
There is no advantage of taking Glucophage before meals. It is better to take with meals as side effects like nausea, bloating are less and minimum effective dose can be used.
Please continue to take amaryl and Januvia before meals.
I would like to know some more information before
1) Please let me know your blood sugar level (FBS &PPBS)
2) Are you taking extended release Glucophage or plain?
Once we have the answers, we can take this discussion ahead.
