Sorry.: What is a CLA pill? Often, we will prescribe OCPs or birth control pills +/- Metformin (Glucophage) for PCOS and recommend weight loss (if the woman is overweight or obese). Many PCOS patients have insulin resistance and the Metformin will help for this problem. Getting toned usually requires exercise.
