I have no experience with it, but I've heard of the combination. Metformin has also been used successfully with Zyprexa, which is notorious for inducing weight gain and even diabetes.

For weight loss in general, adrenergic agents like ephedrine and clenbuterol are known to be useful, and so are stimulants (the central dopaminergic effect may be the main contributor to appetite suppression). Most of these are of course officially contraindicated with MAOIs, but many of them have been tested and are known to be safe if used with caution.

Zonisamide has been reported to help with weight loss. The doses required seemed pretty high if I recall correctly.

Finally, buprenorphine can be useful. Indeed, I've found it to be more effective for weight loss than methylphenidate.
