But I have not yet started the medicines. I am a bit confused, whether should I totally stop Metformin and start with these new drugs?
Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com.
Metformin is a very effective medicine in PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) treatment.
It reduces weight, increases sensitivity to insulin and decreases androgen level.
All these effects are helpful in the treatment of PCOD.
But as you say it is not effective in your case; you can start these above mentioned medications instead of metformin.
But use of myo-inositol in PCOD is not very clear.
You should consult an expert gynaecologist for your treatment. If you have further questions, feel free to ask an obstetrician and gynaecologist online. --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/obstetrician-and-gynaecologist
