So my Dr suggested starting metformin again after my ovarian drilling but I've been putting it off. I struggle so badly with the side effects, resulting in a huge amount of weightless however I'm only 10.4 st anyway! So getting anxious about it. And suggestions 9n how to reduce them? I'm meant to take 1700mg a day. However last time I managed 850mg (1 tablet) a day only and took that just before bed as the stomach pain/ nausea/dizziness/tiredness 3/4 hours afterwards were awful. I had to avoid gluten as that really upset my stomach which is rubbish!
