Also known as Metformin, Glucophage SR is a medication that is used in patients with type 2 diabetes. It works alongside a proper diet and exercise program and, on occasions, other medications to control high blood sugar. Doing this helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs and sexual function problems.
This medication is taken orally usually once a day with the evening meal. Drink plenty of fluids while taking the medication.
Side effects of the medication may include, nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, diarrhoea, weakness or a metallic taste in the mouth.
The medication works by helping to restore the body’s proper response to the insulin that is naturally produced. While also decreasing the amount of sugar that is made by the liver and that is then absorbed by the stomach/intestines.
