Glucophage can help with weight loss in PCOS. Try taking it with food and maybe start with half the dose, to lessen the diarrhoea.

Best wishes

Hi there

Well i am also on glucophage. It does give you a runny tummy when you take it. It also helps in weight loss. I havent taken it continiously,due to travelling and stuff,but when i do take it the next day i do loose a kilo or two. If you take it all the time the runny tummy does stop.

Hope all works out for you
