I had a similar feeling when I was on metaformin.  I didn’t want to eat and felt crappy.  Then when I did eat I would feel a bit better.  After my body got used to it, it didn’t suck as badly.  But I won’t lie, I am happy I do not have to take it anymore.


Best of luck with it working for you and I hope you feel less meh soon!

Maybe try breaking it into smaller meals, staggered across the day? 🙂

I started Metformin (1500mg) about three months ago, initially I felt like I had horribly low blood sugar and felt like garbage! I wasn’t hungry, felt shakey, no GI issues… 

I was told to eat half my meal, take a pill, finish my meal. But I switched it up and take my pill after I eat, which helps. I also take my first pill at lunch.. Second at dinner and third with a snack before I go to bed. Taking a pill too early in the morning is horrible for me, since I don’t Eat breakfast.

Honestly though, it’s working for me. I have PCOS, and had a cycle every 30-38 days, with Metformin I’m down 17.4 pounds (yes, the .4lbs count!!) and feel great, and my period is every 28-30 days!!

I know the first month sucks! But stick with it!! Feel free to IM me with any questions!!
