Metformin 850mg

Metformin (also called Metformin or Glyciphage) can help to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood. This is because it improves the way that the body will naturally respond to insulin. If you have Type 2 Diabetes, diet and exercise may not be enough for you to be able to control it and this can be helped by Metformin.

Most people prefer to use the pill form of Metformin. This is because it is an extended time release product. They can take it once per day and that is it. For the best results though it should be taken at the same time every day when possible. The liquid form is an option, but it does have to be taken every time that you eat a meal for the best results.

The amount of Metformin that you will take daily depends on your Type 2 Diabetes and other factors. Your doctor will do an assessment and then give you the lowest dose that they can. If that doesnít work after a few weeks then they will increase it gradually. Always pay close attention to how much you should take. Donít take it upon yourself to alter that dose. Never skip doses either as that can open up a window of opportunity for serious health problems to occur.

The use of alcohol with Metformin isnít a good idea at all. You may experience some mild side effects initially with this medication. They include headaches, sweating, and being dizzy. Serious side effects can include seizures, difficulty breathing, and confusion. Such side effects need to be brought to the attention of your doctor.

There isnít a cure for Type 2 Diabetes, so the use of Metformin can help with controlling it. This medication will have to be taken ongoing if it works for you. Combined with diet and exercise, it can prevent the health problems from getting worse over time.
