For those of you have tried acarbose, have any of you tried 25mg during a high carb/sugary meal?

I have read on this form that taking 50 - 100 mg makes you gassy and could induce diarrhea, which does not sound ideal. I’m thinking of taking one 25mg pill a day with dinner as a fair compromise. Does the current research back this up?

In my n of 1, it was the amount of carbs I ate more than the dose of acarbose, that caused GI upset. Which I guess means the more I needed the medication, the worse the side effects.

I never had excess gas on acarbose…
