Metformin is a diabetic medication designed to assist with insulin stabilisation. It's given to women with PCOS because insulin resistence is a problem and the latest theory is actually a precursor to PCOS. The theory goes that since PCOS is related to insulin resistence (which is also a precursor to diabetes) then the medication should help stabilise insulin in women with PCOS and assist in stabilising weight.

Latest research seems to point to this not actually being the case. It may help some women to lose weight, but generally isn't seen as effective as it was first thought it would be.

If you can't see it doing anything then talk to your doctor about stopping it. Seems pointless to be on any medication that isn't actually doing anything.
