Experiencing continuous nausea, vomiting, painful. Taken bigomet SR, ovimet. Side effects?

I have been experiencing continuous nausea from last week. There is no vomiting but the feeling is unbearable. This is not food poisoning for sure. Currently I am consuming Bigomet SR 500mg thrice a day for PCOS. Can Bigomet has any sideeffect. I changed from Ovimet to Bigomet only a few days ago and don't know whether this pain is just a co-incidence or not. Also, Ovimet didnt make me feel nauseatic.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

Metformin (bigomet) is a drug which is used for insulin resistance present in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
metformin is associated with sickening feeling in the initial days.
It can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.
These symptoms can be controlled by taking the medicine 10-20 minutes after the meals.
An iron supplement can be used to avoid diarrhea.

Thanks and take care
