Description

Glucophage XR (Metformin) belongs to a group of medications called biguanides. This medication works by reducing the amount of glucose made by the liver and by making it easier for glucose to enter into the tissues of the body. Metformin helps in controlling the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. This medicine helps decreasing the amount of glucose you absorb from food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood. Metformin is used to treat type 2 diabetes alone or sometimes along with Insulin or other medications. Glucophage XR is used together with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This medication is not used to treat type 1 diabetes.
