Re: Pcos

Hi Marbeli,

I have PCOS as well and was put on Metformin. I am unable to tolerate this medication, even at the starting dose as I experience debilitation dizziness, which I hear is rare. In any case, I can't take it.

Try looking into something called D-Chiro Inositol. I am not affiliated, but have taken this supplement on my own and did see some positive results. It is fairly expensive, so you can also try MYO-Inositol if you would like. I have not tried MYO and am not sure where to get it but some women have also reported good feedback from it and it's far less expensive.

There are other supplements, like Vitex, but I have not tried those so I can't give much feedback. Look into alternative PCOS remedies and I am sure you can get a full list and much more detail.

Besides this, diet and exercise are key. Following a low GI or low carb diet works well for most women with PCOS and combining this with even moderate exercise (30 minute walk daily for example) can do wonders for your symptoms.

I hope this helps! I began looking into alternatives when metformin did not work out for me and this is what has helped most for me.

My sister has PCOS. We are very close and she had the same issues with metformin. She is now taking GlucoreinPCOS. SHe has been taking it for a couple of months and she has seen a lot of positive results. I hope she continues to. She has all the bad symptoms and I know with everything she has gone through we are very excited to see some positive changes. I hope this helps. I know she got it online from a company called Napa Valley Nutritionals
