Glucophage

Generic name: Metformin hydrochloride
Brand names: Glucophage

 

What is Glucophage prescribed for?

Glucophage is an oral antidiabetic medication used to treat type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes. Diabetes develops when the body is unable to burn sugar and the unused sugar builds up in the bloodstream. Glucophage lowers the amount of sugar in your blood by decreasing sugar production and absorption and helping your body respond better to its own insulin, which promotes the burning of sugar. It does not, however, increase the body's production of insulin.

Glucophage is sometimes prescribed along with insulin or certain other oral antidiabetic drugs such as glyburide or glipizide. It is also used alone.

Standard Glucophage tablets are taken two or three times daily. An extended-release form (Glucophage XR) is available for once-daily dosing.

Always remember that Glucophage is an aid to, not a substitute for, good diet and exercise. Failure to follow a sound diet and exercise plan can lead to serious complications such as dangerously high or low blood sugar levels. Remember, too, that Glucophage is not an oral form of insulin and cannot be used in place of insulin.

 

What are the side effects of Glucophage?

Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Glucophage.

If side effects from Glucophage occur, they usually happen during the first few weeks of therapy. Most side effects are minor and will go away after you've taken Glucophage for a while.

 

Do I need a prescription to get Glucophage?

You need a prescription for Glucophage to be legally used. If you do not have a prescription, see a doctor or visit the sites listed here and take the online questionnaire. There is no need to visit your doctor's office, make phone calls, or fax medical history or health insurance information when you get a Glucophage prescription online.

 

How do I take Glucophage?

Do not take more or less of this medication than directed by your doctor. The drug should be taken with food to reduce the possibility of nausea or diarrhea, especially during the first few weeks of therapy.

If taking Glucophage XR, be sure to swallow the tablet whole do not crush it or chew it. The inactive ingredients in the tablet may occasionally appear in the stool. This is fairly normal.

 

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose of Glucophage, take it as soon as you remember, if it is within an hour or so. If you do not remember until later, skip the missed dose and resume your usual schedule. Do not 'double-up' the Glucophage dose to catch up.

 

Important fact about Glucophage

Glucophage could cause a very rare&mdashbut potentially fatal&mdashside effect known as lactic acidosis. It is caused by a buildup of lactic acid in the blood. The problem is most likely to occur in people whose liver or kidneys are not working well, and in those who have multiple medical problems, take several medications, or have congestive heart failure. The risk also is higher if you are an older adult or drink alcohol. Lactic acidosis is a medical emergency that must be treated in a hospital. Notify your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following:

Symptoms of lactic acidosis may include: Dizziness, extreme weakness or tiredness, light-headedness, low body temperature, rapid breathing or trouble breathing, sleepiness, slow or irregular heartbeat, unexpected or unusual stomach discomfort, unusual muscle pain.

 

Why should Glucophage not be prescribed?

Glucophage is processed primarily by the kidneys, and can build up to excessive levels in the body if the kidneys aren't working properly. It should be avoided if you have kidney disease or your kidney function has been impaired by a condition such as shock, blood poisoning, or a heart attack.

Do not take Glucophage if you have ever had an allergic reaction to metformin.

Do not take Glucophage if you have metabolic or diabetic ketoacidosis (a life-threatening medical emergency caused by insufficient insulin and marked by excessive thirst, nausea, fatigue, pain below the breastbone, and fruity breath). Diabetic ketoacidosis should be treated with insulin.
