Hey hunn, metformin should always be taken with food. Make sure you do that for sure. I've been on it for almost 10 years it works with weight loss and controlling the sugars....pcos is crazy and there is a lot involved..I would ask about your dosage but like any new medication give it time. 1500mg is a normal dosage but mark my words eat when u take it lol
The whole issue with the Metformin is it's actually a drug for people with Diabeties* they take it with their meals instead of taking insulin to help control the pancreas...the issue with PCOS is the body thinks its not producing enough insulin so it creates more, hense the cravings for sweets and carbs etc. Metformin when taken with your meals (breaky, lunch and dinner) hps control your pancreas and keep that inder control. Another tidbit of info, if you eat healthy enough and exercise every couple days its a life saver for helping loose weight.
I take metformin for diabetes and when I was told to take 2,000 mg, I felt light-headed and very weak. I told the doctor I would take 1,000 mg, 500 mg in the morning with my breakfast and 500 mg with my dinner. It seems like I can tolerate this amount in my system. Best wishes to you.
