Nearly one year ago I was diagnosed with PCOS and RX'd metformin 500mg twice a day. I have tried very hard to take this medication because I know it helps with weight loss as well as other PCOS symptoms but I have such horrible symptoms.
My symptoms include:
and worst of all is the diarrhea
Sorry if that was a little TMI but I feel like a lot of us have been there, right?
I really want to succeed with my metformin but it has caused me to miss exams, work, and important social events.
Does anyone have any advice on how to cope with Metformin side effects so that I can go to work and not spend half my time there in the bathroom? Or know of any alternatives to metformin that aid in PCOS weight loss?
