So I just started 6mp last week. Since then, I have been extremely nauseous.  Is this common?

It is a side effect with some people, and I have seen posts about how it does go away with time. One tatctic many have used with success is taking the dose before bed at night to minimize nausea.

I'm with MikeB.  When I use to use 6mp I was first told to take it first thing in the morning.  I did the first day and was really nauseous.  Switched it to bedtime and had no further problems with nausea.

When I took 6-MP I had no nausea until 3 weeks into it, then I vomited all night long and had to stop. I think it's a better sign and somewhat normal to have some nausea in the beginning.

i took it right before i went to bed. soemtimes id wake up from the nausea but roll over and go back to bed. when the doc increased my dose i was nauseous all the time. decreased it back and then i broke out in hives - needless to say - take it at night.
