    How do I get prescribed Metmorfin?

    Hi ladies!
    You may have seen an earlier post from me saying that I can't get any treatment from a specialist until I lose 4st.
    I just assumed Metmorfin would be one of those treatments but I've seen others on this board saying they've been prescribed it by their GP - can anyone get it? Id love some help to shift this weight faster.

    My GP wouldnt prescribe metformin to me because it isnt actually licensed for PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) (this is what she told me anyway) so she had to refer me to a gynaecologist. He prescribed it straight away. Im "obese" my BMI is 33 but its meant to help weight loss (it didnt for me) so I cant understand why theyre asking you to lose weight 1st!
    Gynae wouldnt prescribe Clomid until Id been on the metformin 9months as he wanted to give my body the best chance to fall PG on its own. I took SI the month before I was due to start Clomid, after checking with the gynae that it was OK, and I got my BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) after 18months of trying.
    Good Luck xxx

So when blood sugar dips, the brain must fall back on special biochemistry to meet its energy needs. From studyin ...
