I really don't know anything about PCOS (I don't have it that I know of) but the woman featured on this show said that her skin cleared up in addition to losing the 50 pounds, and that she also was able to become pregnant. I just don't know anything else about it except that the drug has something to do with lowering the insulin level. She attributed the weight gain and skin problems to the onset of the PCOS, not vice versa because her eating habits did not change at that time.
