Question about treatments for PCOS

I'd always had irregular periods and cramps that have me laid up for at least three days out of the six-seven that I have my period, but they'd finally started coming with some normalcy until maybe 8-12 months ago. The past few months have been terrible - cramps and pelvic pressure, mood swings almost constantly, random and unexplained weight gain that I can't lose and acne I can't get rid of - so I finally sucked it up and went to the GYN who diagnosed me with PCOS.

She told me that PCOS could be a big factor in my anxiety and depression, especially since both get much worse around the time I'm ovulating. She's starting me on Ortho Tricyclen, but I'm worried about side effects (I was on Loestrin 24 previously and while it helped with the anxiety and depression, it made my migraines about 1000 times worse). I did some research on my own and was wondering if anyone has any info/experiences/advice on using Inositol (or any other alternative treatments) in place of or alongside birth control pills to help with PCOS symptoms.
