I didn't feel headaches, but lots of gas!
It helped me to lose weight in one aspect: I was less hungry. Before being on metformin, when I was hungry I had to eat right in that moment. I was very anxious for food, I even was afraid of being hungry. I had some kind of hunger-fobia (if that can exist). I eated before I was hungry because hunger was a very bad feeling.
After I started with metformin, everything is easier. I can be hungry and nothing bad happens. Maybe it was just my mind, but I think that there was something phisical about that and I am much better.
It is still very difficult to lose weight, but at least I am not afraid of being hungry and don't eat all the time.
I have been several years with metformin now, and I still have lots of problems with my weight. Don't expect miracles, but it helps.
I still have digestive problems if I forgot one pill (I take one in the morning and one at night every day) or randomly (maybe it has something to do with the food but I don't know the rules)
