Not so sure that you're doing anything wrong. Metformin can be had on some peoples stomach. I'm fortunate and don't have that problem. I would speak to your doctor about the problem and see if they can come up with a more effective, less agonizing med to help you get your BG levels under control. (Make sure you are taking your meds with food or shortly before or right after eating....) Get exercise, drink tons of water and monitor your BG levels.
I am a type 2 diabetic as well and Metformin upsets my stomach as well along with my cholesterol medication that I take in the evening. I would let your Doctor know about the side effects that you are having for sure
