Im on metformin 500mg 2 times a day. If I eat even a little bit too much I feel like vomiting. Thought it was a one time thing but it often happens. And I feel like I have a lot more acid. Burp alot too. I am going to the doctors next week but you guys always have better advice. I take my pill half way through eating. And limit my carbs to 30mg or less per meal. and eat 5-6 small meals. I do eat more veggies now. thanks guys have a great day. almost the weekend. :)

I go up and down with the symptoms you mention on Metformin. Some days I get sick to my stomach and others I do not!

When I was on Met I didn't experience those symptoms, but others here on DC have reported having them.

I experience that feeling at times myself. Did not know Metformine could be the root cause. Good discussion topic, I learned something today.

I take metformin 500 mgs 2pills twice a day. I used to troy to eat before i tood it but i found that if I waited a bit after i took it and then ate the nausea wasn't a problem. hope this helps

It could be the metformin. How long have you been taking it? Quite often it bothers me, but usually if I wait too long to eat after taking it. But it can cause nausia and maybe taking it right before you eat instead of in the middle. Have you talked to the doctor?

if i took it before I ate I had no appitite. I have been on it for 34 days. Doc told me to try taking it in the middle. I will talk to her . have an appointment next week. thanks

I take it mid meal, as well, but have had no problems with it from the start. I hope you can work something outl Good luck!
