Most adult data are derived from Chinese randomized controlled trials (RCTs), supporting the use of metformin not only for AAP-induced weight gain but also for AAP-induced hyperlipidemia.[1],[2] Metformin also helps in antipsychotic-induced hyperprolactinemia.[3] Interestingly, metformin was shown in a 24-week RCT to possess antidepressant and precognitive actions in diabetics.[4] Metformin is not metabolized by hepatic microsomal enzymes, hence no pharmacokinetic interactions can be expected.

Ovulation depends on a number of factors, including complex interactions among hormones secreted from the brain, the pituitary gland and the ovary after reproductive maturity.1 During the menstrual cycle, the concentrations of hormones change dramatically resulting in ovulation and preparation of the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg.
