How does Metformin work?

Metformin is an oral anti-diabetic drug used primarily in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes containing the active ingredient Metformin Hydrochloride.

It is intended to help control the amount of sugar in the blood, as well as responding to low amount of insulin produced in the body. It can be used on its own or combined with other medications.

This prescribed drug is a biguanide and decreases the amount of sugar, or glucose entering your blood. It does this by:

  • Inhibiting glucose production from the liver
  • Inhibiting glucose production from food
  • Increasing glucose uptake by muscle and fat tissues

Metformin is regarded as the most commonly prescribed and safe medication for diabetes treatment in the world, and has been successfully treating Type 2 diabetes for more than 40 years. Metformin is also referred to as Glucophage®, Glucophage® SR, Metsol®, Bolamyn® SR.

This treatment is not intended for Type 1 diabetes, as insulin injections will probably still be required.

The active ingredient in Metformin

People with diabetes have a deficiency or absence of a hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin. Insulin is the main hormone responsible for the control of sugar in the blood. In Type 2 diabetes the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin and the cells of the body are resistant to the low levels of insulin circulating in the blood.

How do you take Metformin?

Metformin is generally taken two or three times per day in the form of a 500mg or 850mg tablet. The maximum allowed daily dose is 3,000mg taken as three individual doses. If you feel that your selected dosage choice is too strong or too weak, you can arrange an appointment with your doctor to adjust your dosage after 10 to 15 days.

You should only ever take the pill as prescribed and follow the instructions on the leaflet. It's recommended you take this prescribed drug during or after meals, and the pill should not be chewed. Regular blood tests should be conducted to ensure blood sugar levels are maintained and your doctor can do these.

Who can take Metformin tablets?

Metformin pills can be taken by almost anyone who suffers from Type 2 diabetes; however there are some people who should exercise caution:

  • If you are allergic to Metformin
  • If you experience diabetic ketoacidosis
  • If you suffer from heart or liver disease

If you will require a CT scan or x-ray that uses an injected dye during this treatment, you should temporarily stop taking the medication. Finally, you should monitor yourself for the possibility of lactic acidosis, a potentially serious side effect, and seek medical attention immediately if this occurs.

Metformin tablet side effects

If any side effects continue to persist, it is advised that you contact your doctor. Potential side effects include:

  • Diarrhoea
