I don't know much about the drug but I just read another poster below who said she had the opposite effect and lost 50 pounds since she started taking Met. I forgot which post but I think it's titled something about problems getting pregnant and obese??
WOW!! I think I gained like 5 pounds while on the drug?? I am nowhere near obese, but have PCOS. I'm sure my dh likes the extra weight, but the hunger is RIDICULOUS!!
I've been on Metformin for clost to 2 year...PCOS. Other the nausea I felt nothing out of the ordinary.
i have lost 10 lbs on metformine so i guess thats a good thing since i got PCOS i have gained over 50lbs. YIKES!!!!!
I'm not familiar with the drug 'Metformin' but my RE has me on Aygestin (aka Norethindrone) for 21 days, which is basically like a really strong birth control pill twice a day and it is making me eat like an 'INSANE' person. I think about food all the time and can image literally shoveling food into my mouth. I've always been a thin person, but in two weeks, I've put on a serious gut. Thank goodness I don't have a scale. I've never had a eating disorder, but right now I could totally binge and be in heaven about it. I fantasize about eating. It is crazy.
One more little side note to let you know how out of control I am, the other night, i went to bed with a jar of olives???!! Who does that?? I need an intervention!!
