Brief Answer:
Both can be taken together

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HCM. I have gone through the question and understand your concerns.

Seroquel ( quitapine) can be taken along with Metformin. Only problem is the blood sugars can go up with Seroquel. So you have to monitor sugars and increase the dose of Metformin if sugars go up.

Hope I have answered your questions. If you have any further queries I will be happy to help you.

Brief Answer:
Chance of hypoglycaemia is rare with Metformin

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome back.

Your HbA1c is on lower side. Still Metformin won't cause much of hypoglycaemia. You can repeat your fasting insulin and fasting sugar to confirm you are insulin resistant. If not you can stop Metformin
