I'm not upping it anytime soon; will stay on 1000 mg b/c I went to have my prescription filled and they told me it was $573 for 60 1000 mg pills (with insurance)!!! So my OB gave me some free samples and I will be taking those for now. Hope your appointment with the new OB is great!
Do you have insurance? Mine has been covering the name brand with no problem. I take 4 500mg pills a day (2 and 2). I only pay around $20 (for some reason it's different every time).
Yes, I have UHC. This is the first time getting this prescription filled at Wal-Mart and I had to leave it there. 3 months ago getting it at CVS it was only $45 for 60 pills. I don't know why it is such a BIG difference!

I've heard that ER is easier on your stomach sometimes also...So maybe that helped too with going down in dose! Thats nuts that they started you right on 2000mg, although I was kinda wishing my doc would have so I could move up slowly as needed. I'm sorry my story scared you!! I think I just have inevitably the worst luck ever with doctors!

Aein, thats great! Let us know how the test goes!! And what do you mean by external effects? I know a lot of women with PCOS and IR are over weight and stuff, like in the mid section. I have skin tags and stuff that I've heard could be a symptom of PCOS, and dark patches of skin like in your arm pits. Mostly the effects of PCOS are internal though I do believe. But its so different for everyone, its hard to tell...

yea this is what i wanna know, actually my cycle is regular, and yes i got weight but i felt thus is why my atmosphere change here and we were also on sum healthy food, weekly going outside for dinner....

let c now just test result can determine either i have PCOS or not ... waiting n waiting

Once telling my OB about my irregular cycles; she took a glance and said you probably have PCOS b/c that it what she has; after tests she was right. Examples of mine my mid section is a little fluffly, dandruff, oily skin. Everyone's symptoms are different.
if i take a look back on my cycles study i had regular of 28 days cycle, even on fingures i was aware at which date my mensis start, so they...

but in these 7 months, only 4th month was first time tht i 5 days late for mensis... after tht last 2 cycles again normal.... ehhh we just can think n conclude by ourself, dont knw wt is waiting for me in nearby future

i really wish to be a mother now

I'd like to join this thread

I found out on Aug 24 I have PCOS (though I've suspected longer before) I currently take 500mg ER Metformin and was denied to have the dosage up by my doctor. So I have an appt to see a ob/gyn on Oct 17 so I'm hoping they could help me more then my doctor could.

P.S. I get my medicine from Wal-Greens and it's only $1.00 for 30 pills (one month supply) - I have CDPHP

Yup I didn't have the side effects, but I can't eat certain foods and eat too much carbs or my body will fight me in the bathroom. Though I've noticed along with WWs and the Metformin - I'm losing weight. I'm hoping losing 10% (which i'm close to) will help me out more with my PCOS and TTC.

Will this be everyone's first? I've been using the OPK but have not received a positive, but I think I have ovulated b/c I had this terrible pain on both side's of the abdomen and so I had to google it. It is ok to have pains on both sides while taking clomid. Hoping everyone will get

Yep, sounds like my experience. I've been noting all the things I've found don't do too well with the Metformin lol Thats great that you're close to 10% lost! What is your goal? I want to lose 75lbs Wishfull, it kinda sounds like it is. Everyone seems to be either just starting or just passed their first month of taking the met! Maybe you O'd on both sides!!! Ahhh! Maybe you'll have twins! I would love twins

babyjla - I lost near 140lbs with WWs and went from 300lbs to 160lbs. Then I had surgery got depressed and ate half my weight back O.O So I would LOVE to get back to 160 since I know I've done it before, but at this moment I'm aiming for 10% (need to lose 7lbs) then getting out of the 200lbs. If I aim for smaller weight goals, i'll feel better then aiming right for 160lbs
