Each study involved a 13-week treatment. For study A, 18 subjects took 500 mg berberine three times daily at the beginning of each major meal or 500 mg metformin three times daily after major meals. For study B, 500 mg berberine three times daily was added to their previous treatment for 3 months. If heavy gastrointestinal side-effects occurred, the dose of berberine was reduced to 300 mg three times daily.
