Default Alternatives to Metformin

My Psychiatrist started me on Metformin to counter act the weight gain I have gotten from Seroquel. In the months I have been on Seroquel I have gained about 60lbs . I weight 210lbs now my normal weight is like 150lbs maybe highest was 170lbs.

The Metformin is supposed to counter act the weight gain from the Seroquel but the only problem is since I have started taking it a few days ago I have noticed stomach problems. And having to go number 2 a lot.

Is there any alternatives to Metformin I can use to counter act the weight gain from Seroquel? That does not cause stomach problems.
