    Hi Everybody
    I am new to this site so not sure how it really works but thought I would give it a try.
    I have PCOS and the doctor has put me on metformin 1700mg for the last 2 months, had a natural period and then he put me on Clomid 50mg. I took it on day 2 - 7 and finished the last tab yesterday. The last two days I have had to go home sick from work from being so dizzy, hot flushes and crying. I know they are the side effects but I can't cope with the dizzy feeling!! Has anyone experienced this too and if so how long does it last for ??
    Thanks

    Hi Hun-I am on cd 13 and took mine 2-6. I had hot flushes, tired, emotional and feeling sicky. Wednesday I could barely stop myself from bursting into tears all day and did when I got home! However, as of yesterday I am feeling better and my scan this morning showed its working for me. I dont have PCOS, in fact Dr cant find anything 'wrong' with either of us. My friend has PCOS and said it was the metformin that made her feel crap-really sick. I am on clomid for 3 months but hope I dont need to be cos of the side effects! x

    Thanks for the feed back Irish Girl and KittyCat. Hopefully it works for you too!!
    The metformin does also make you feel really nausea, I found that the Extented release tabs help a bit. Can't believe how much the meds effect us I wasn't really prepared for it.
    Kittycat did you get dizzy?

    Yes I did a little for the first few days as my mum said I shouldnt be driving! (I work about 45 mins away from where I live) but this lasted probably 2 days. Its hard to know whether its in your head or not sometimes?! Good luck hun x
