Metformin CAUSING chin acne breakouts

Postby Prayer4ourbaby » Tue Jan 19, 2016 12:00 pm

Hello all - I was officially diagnosed with PCOS in late September 2015. So my doctor prescribed me Metformin ER (2 pills per day) since early October 2015. I have noticed that ever since taking it, I am having breakouts on my chin. I have never suffered from acne breakouts, even in my teens. Has anyone else had this reaction to taking Metformin as well? Thank in advance :)

i think you need to consult with the doctor for that, there is nothing to worry about in my opinion

I take met 2,000 mg a day and it helped clear up any hormonal issue I had like that. I now notice the only time I get chin acne is right around o time!
