  • Perceived effectiveness for PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome): Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 2 x 500 mg/5 mL Daily
Advice & Tips: I was advised to take 1000mg of Metformin (2x daily). Both are required to take with food. I can't take the first pill in the morning because that's when I take my thyroid medication, which must be taken on it's own with no food. If I take the first Metformin at lunch time, then I have to take the second near dinner or bed time; they're taken so closely together that it upsets my stomach most of the time.
