What are the side effects of metformin?

Eelyn Goh30sFemale
I started to take metformin early this month to help manage my PCOS. The first week into the metformin, I got gastric, nausea, loss of appetite and vomiting. Now, it's my 3rd week into metformin and I still have gastric, nausea and loss of appetite. Is this normal? Are there other medicines to replace metformin?

Answer from the Doctor
Try the extended release version, less side effects. And take it at night, after dinner, before bed.
