3g's is more than I have ever done but einstein has a few posts about alternatives to metformin... one that has less stomach issues and more suited for bb purposes (muscular system)... do a search on Metformin or Glucophage in these forums...
Here are some posts... can't find the one where einstein talks about the benefits of one over the other when it comes to bb purposes...
