About Myomet 600/500 Tablet 10's

Myomet 600/500 Tablet 10's is a combination medicine used to treat polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Polycystic ovary/ovarian syndrome is a hormonal disorder that causes enlarged ovaries with numerous small follicles. Symptoms include irregular periods, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity.

Myomet 600/500 Tablet 10's is composed of two medicines, namely: Myo-inositol and Metformin. Myo-inositol reduces blood glucose levels and improves the ovulation process in women with PCOS. Metformin is an antidiabetic medicine that belongs to the class of biguanides. The majority of women with PCOS have higher insulin levels. Metformin is an insulin sensitizer that improves insulin sensitivity (body cells utilize insulin effectively to produce glucose) and thus increases the effects of insulin.

Your doctor will decide the dose and duration based on your medical condition. The common side effects of Myomet 600/500 Tablet 10's include nausea, taste changes, diarrhoea, dizziness, stomach pain, and loss of appetite. Although not everyone experiences these side effects, if they occur, please seek medical attention.
