Metformin Dosage During Pregnancy

08/22/2008

Question:

I have PCOS and was taking metformin as I was trying to conceive. I was taking 1750mg daily and just about 2 weeks ago, I found out that I am pregnant. Should I reduce the dosage now that I am pregnant or is this dosage still safe for the baby?

Answer:

Metformin is considered to be safe to use during the first trimester of pregnancy.  The dose that you are taking is in the "normal" range.  I would check with your physician to determine if he/she still advise you to continue.
