Metformin and diarrhea?

I recently started taking metformin 3 x daily. However, I began getting pretty bad stomach pain and the more recently diarreah that does not want to stop. At work, I had to get up from my desk various times to go to the bathroom and it seemed like I may not make it in time or that it was endless. Sorry about the description.
I feel like it has to be the medication because nothing really in my diet or schedule has changed. Has anyone else dealt with this?

I switched to Jardiance and have no complaints so far! Talk to your doctor and see if that could be an option for you/
Well I am so happy to report that it has been 2 days since I injected the 1.5 unit of Trulicity and no adverse symptoms. I am so excited. My blood sugar was 105 fasting this morning. That is the best reading yet. I am thrilled that I will not have to take insulin as the Trulicity is doing its job to stimulate my pancreas to produce the insulin for me. I am assuming that I had to build up a tolerance for the medication. It took four weeks but I am good to go anywhere without the fear of needing a bathroom ASAP.
