I'm a 21 year old female.. My doctor started me on Metformin today for my PCOS.. I wanted to know what you guys have experienced whilst being on the drug. Weight loss, dizziness, etc?
Answer on What are some effects of Metformin?
I've never been on this drug before, however; I deal with lots of different kinds of meds at my job as a med aide at a rest home. There are some side effects to this drug like all drugs. Some of the more common ones are diarrhea, gas, nausea, weakness, indigestion, loss of appetite, and headaches. Some of the more serious side effects are lactic acidosis. (trouble breathing, abnormal heartbeats, feeling cold, light-headedness, muscle pain) If you are feeling any of these symptoms I would tell my doc.
