hi,thanks for query.Both drugs are same,only brand name is different.This medicines is used for treatment of PCOD and in most of the patients reduces weight,but still it is not the major effect,it is only a beneficial by product.Please continue with either of them.Apart from this please talk to your doctor about other help for reducing weight like diet planning and regular exercise.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, tab glycomet n glucophage are same tab with different brand name. this is used in case of PCOD. it cant helps in redusing weight. so you should take it for PCOD not for weight . you should get thyroid profile as hypo thyroidism is also cause of weight gain n PCOD. if you find it start proper treatment , your weight is redused when it will normal. in case of PCOD gonadal hormonal imbalance occure this is the also region of weight gain. so do not worry when your this prob subside ,then you can control your weight.
