Should I try to eat?

I have just started metformin a week ago. I took my dose today. I also take Welbutrin and it makes me have no appitite. But I am supposed to eat with the metformin. Since Im not hungry it makes it hard for me to get anything down. But an hour after I took my meds my stomach feels like it is burning. Is this from the metformin? And should I force myself to eat knowing it will most likely come back up?

  • take the metformin at a different time than the wellbutrin, say take the metformin in the am and the wellbutrin in the afternoon

  • Yeah I got the diareah the FIRST day and everyday since lol. I havnt been able to go to school or job search since I started cause I always have to have a bathroom near by. Its so stressful! But they told me if I suck it up and make it through it will stop in a month or two. I think for the fact that I am trying to get preg and this is a great option I can survive a few months of bathroom visits lol.
