Metformin & PCOS: Extended release metformin does not work well for women with PCOS. We will base the dose on your 2 hour insulin value. Many never get this checked. A low glycemic diet, and strength training exercise are important.Consider dietary counseling with a PCOS trained dietician. If you have sleep apnea, that should be addressed. 85% can have regular cycles in 6 months. http://bit.ly/GRS_PCOS
