Hello, OBIMET has metformin in it and is one of the most important medicine given in PCOS patients to reduce hyperinsulinemia. Loss of appetite nausea,vomiting,diarrhea,cramps,flatulence are the most common side effcts of METFORMIN. Since it is very important to be given,you can start with small dose of 250 mg once a day for a week and then make it twice a day. You can gradually increase the dose and your symptoms would settle hope fully. Along wit tj His,you must do regular aerobic exercises for 45 minutes to 1 hour a day. Reduce your weight. It is said that a mere reduction of 10% of your weight shall enable you to get normal periods. Thanks
