Hello,

This drug is not supposed to cause weight gain. On the contrary, it may sometimes help with weight loss and it will definitely help with glucose intolerance that comes with PCOS. Watching your diet (perhaps with the help of a dietitian) and increasing your physical activity will help with weight loss.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Panagiotis Zografakis, Internal Medicine Specialist
