metformin (glucophage question)

im using glucophage as a GDA at the mo. what i would like to know is:

1. How many carbs would i need to eat each time i take a tab. (im taking 3 x 500mg a day - breakfast, lunch and PW meal)

2. can i mix carbs and fat with the meals?

3. how long before each meal should it be taken

4. aim is to keep in ketosis while consumin a small amount of carbs - how can i tell i am still in ketosis?

thank you

    50g of carbs

    Yes, thats the benefit of glucophage

    Which tablets do you have? Fast/sustained or a mixture of the two?
    With each meal would be fine though

    Ketostix, but they are misleading due to hydration levels etc.

    ive got the normal generic meformin tabs, so i guess they are fast acting.

    i am going to take them with the 3 meals, consume around 30g carbs with each meal.
