From this study (3 years ago):
Recently had IBS symptoms (diahrrhea, stomach pain, bloating, gas) for several weeks. My physician diagnosed me with IBS. He also said that Metformin can cause loose bowels. I stopped the Metformin then for a few days (on my own).
I noticed that bowel movements became more normal.
