Dear Doctor
I am sorry , i have forgotten to tell my dosage. Since 7 months I am taking half of 500 mg glycomet (ie .250 mg) after breakfast and 500 mg after lunch and 500 mg after dinnner. Why this because, i used to feel low sugasr after 2 to 2 1/2 hrs after taking 500 mg after breakfast. Hence this. Is this Ok for me? Shall i continue like this?
Kindly advise.
