Can you take metformin if you don't have insulin restrains or type 2, taking it to lose weight and get pregnant 1500mg, will it cause sugar to drop?
Under supervision: Some doctors will prescribe it for women who don't necessarily have Insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes, but who desire pregnancy. It's not a recommended drug for weight loss. You should definitely be under a doctor's supervision when taking, as it has many side effects, most of which are GI related. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/drug-information/dr601533/dsection=side-effects. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

So, there is a small chance of getting pregnant, regardless of whether or not one is diabetic. ...Read more

Maybe: It's not recommended to take it if you are trying to get pregnant, but that is because no one knows what kind of effects it has on the fetus. I wouldn't worry about it affecting your blood sugar as you are taking metformin for pcos related fertility issues rather than diabetes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
