Metformin is known cause "stomach issues". So what you're describing sounds like its from the metformin. However, in most cases these symptoms pass over time as the body gets used to the medication. Perhaps the extended release version may be a better option?

Try taking half a pill once a day for a couple of days then try a half a pill twice a day for a couple of days...work up to 2 pills 2X a day.

MET causes a a decrease in digestion of carbohydrates. The now undigested carbs travel to the large intestine where some people do not have the proper bacterial flora to handle the new fuel source, hence the issues. Carb reduction is important when first starting on MET.. Your body will slowly develop the proper bacteria to handle this, but ir takes time.

It is based on a lot of information that I had read and first hand info from those that had no difficulty (issues) with MET from the get go. Most long term vegetarians seem to have little difficulty using MET, I feel because of a more complete bacterial flora in their gut.
