Metformin might help: Nothing that is going to make a big difference. A doctor could prescribe Metformin, a prescription medicine that has been shown to have a positive effect on PCOS

No OTC med: If you are diagnosed with PCOS you need to be seen by your physician and see if you are good candidate for medication like Metformin.
