Is the hunger pains due to taking both medications at same time?

Hi there, I am taking metformin (850 mg ) 3 times a day and as of Sunday I started Yasmin birth control pill. I have been having bad hunger pains at the same time every day. Is it because I am taking both medications at the same time? I ve been on Yasmin in the past and had no side effects.

There are numerous factors that change hunger and weight. Aging is probably the most reliable in that it affects literally 100% of people to change weight and eating. Hormonal levels certainly can cause this and it will interact with age.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
