A quick note on medication before we start...

Currently, I am taking 1500mg of Metformin a day to help with PCOS related stttuuffff. I was on 2000mg for the past year but since got it reduced. It still can make me sick, and long-term wise I don't really see where it is all leading. I have an appointment with a specialist PCOS clinic at the end of January and so I am hoping that I will get some answers, and maybe talk about coming off the Metformin altogether! I want to see how much my diet and lifestyle can have an affect on my symptoms when not medicated...but that is a scary thought! Having medication for something like this is a little like having a comfort blanket.

Anyone else taking Metformin?

What have you found makes you ill when you are on it?


  1. I am on 1500 but no symptoms, have lost about 8kg in 3 months.

    1. That is an amazing weight loss Clare! Congratulations:) Do you take it all at once or spread throughout the day?
