Does metformin make u tired, gassy and hungry?

Iím new to this particular board. I actually donít have PCOS but was recently diagnosed with Type II diabetes and just started 500 mg a day of metformin.

Iíve been experiencing some unusual symptoms since starting metformin including fatigue, gassiness and increased hunger (a gnawing type hunger). I was wondering if anyone else on this board who might be on metformin has experienced the same thing and if so, how do you remedy these symptoms? Iíll really appreciate anyoneís insight.

Re: Does metformin make u tired, gassy and hungry?

I've been on Metformin in the past and just recently went back on it. I'm experiencing some major diarrhea with it (which is why I went off of it before).
I've read though that it can make you gassy and hungry. I guess it's different for everyone . . . it's making me not want to eat anything because I go running for the toilet
