Welcome! I am taking 500 mg XR 3 times a day, and also spironolactone 100 mg a day. I've heard some people mention taking more than that even, but it seems all our doctors have different opinions.

Hi, all,

Thanks for the personal welcome from several of you, that is so nice!

I am new to sparkpeople and this forum, but not PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 1997, when I was trying to get PG with my first child. I have had three children (age 9, age 7 and a 7 month old) despite PCOS, but have had severe Gestational Diabetes with each pregnancy...so severe with the last PG that I needed to use an insulin pump for much of the pregnancy.

I have successfully lost my pregnancy weight and about another 15-20 lbs, and want to keep losing. I take metformin XR 500 mg a day. Think its too low a dosage and am curious what others are taking who are using XR.

Looking forward to getting to know you all!


I am so sorry this posted in the wrong place...can someone delete? I went into the introduction forum to post it, but it still posted to general?

Julie
