I have PCOS and this is why I have been taking the Metformin. I haven't been diagnosed as actually being diabetic. I have been taking 500mg 2/day for 3 or 4 years now. As for the side effects above...I did have the majority of them for the last 2 to 3 weeks when they increased the meds to 1000mg 2/day. So, I am going to see a new doctor on Monday and will hopefully be able to get it all figured out.
If I am barely above the high norm...it doesn't make sense to double my medication. Thank you so much for answering and for your help.
