Buy Metformin (Glucophage) | Brand & Generic

Metformin is affordable and easy to buy with RXConnected. Order your prescription medications from our Canadian online pharmacy or call us 7 days a week and get metformin delivered to your door for the fraction of the cost you usually pay.

What is Metformin?

Glucophage (metformin) is an oral tablet medication for patients with diabetes in order to regulate their blood sugar levels.

The generic name of Glucophage is metformin.

The sole use of metformin is not sufficient enough to regulate blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, as it must be used together with a proper exercise on a balanced diet.

In some cases, Glucophage is taken together with the use of insulin or other medications, but metformin is not intended to be used for treatment for patients suffering from type 1 diabetes.

Glucophage should only be taken exactly as instructed by your doctor while following all directions on your prescription label.

Unless advised differently by your doctor, you should take Glucophage with food.

In some cases, your doctor may prescribe you to take a specific amount of vitamin B12 while you are taking Glucophage.

This medication should be taken while administering proper exercise, proper diet, weight control, and regular blood sugar testing.

Cautions

Consult with your doctor if you are required to have surgery or a CT scan as you may need to stop taking Glucophage for a short time.

To ensure the safety, while taking this medication, ensure that your doctor is aware of your medical history, especially if you have had kidney disease, high ketone levels in your blood or urine, heart disease, congestive heart failure, liver disease, or used diabetes medications.

Metformin Side Effects

There is always a potential risk of side effects when taking any medication and it is imperative that you are aware of both the more common and serious Glucophage side effects.

The more common Glucophage side effects may include:

• Low blood sugar

• Nausea

• Upset stomach

• Diarrhea

The more uncommon, yet more serious Glucophage side effects may include:

• Unusual muscle pain

• Chills

• Difficulty breathing

• Dizziness, light-headed, tiredness, weakness

• Stomach pain

• Vomiting

• Slow or irregular heart rate

If you experience even mild symptoms of any of these less common, serious Glucophage side effects, inform your doctor at once, and seek emergency medical assistance. In some cases, people using Glucophage may develop lactic acidosis, which could be fatal.

FAQs

Can I drink alcohol while I’m taking Glucophage?

No, do not consume alcohol while taking Glucophage, as it can potentially raise the risk of lactic acidosis, which can be fatal. Also, alcohol will affect your treatment as it lowers your blood sugar levels. Speak to your doctor about these risks for more information.

I forgot to take my medication today. What should I do?

As soon as you’ve realized that you forgot your dose, take your medication right away unless it’s near the time of your next scheduled dose. Never take double your daily dose to make up for the dose you missed.
