Out of all those three, metformin has the best research and clinical results behind it for treating PCOS. Definitely get a 2nd opinion. Unless you've lost a lot of weight and no longer fit the criteria for requiring metformin, but if that's the case, you shouldn't need the other 2 either.

I have a website with loads of PCOS info Please stop by!

I'm on just what you are on give or take mg....
I'd ask you're "old" doctor and email/talk to your new doctor. If everythings been working for you,why change. Did your new doctor tell you why they'd like to take you off of everything? I was just put on all of my meds so I'm not sure if things change as years go by. Sorry not much help, hang in there.

I have been dealing with PCOS for about 11 yrs now.. I am only 27...SUCKS! ever since day one my drs have had me on Metoformin 1000 mg and Spirolactin 200 mg (spelling!) and then the birth control... I have since changed drs due to insurance and now this new guy is wanting to take me off of everything except birth control and 50 mg of spirolactin... I am unsure of this... has anyone had this type of issue...
