Were you looking for information about Metformin? Metformen is a common misspelling of metformin.
For people with type 2 diabetes, a healthcare provider may prescribe metformin (Glucophage®) to help control blood sugar levels. Metformin works by helping to lower the amount of sugar in your blood. However, if metformin does not work for you or if it causes bothersome side effects, there are some alternatives to metformin, such as Avandia® (rosiglitazone) or insulin. Some potential side effects of metformin can include diarrhea, headaches, and vomiting. Be sure to seek immediate medical attention if you think you have overdosed on metformin and have overdose symptoms, such as fainting, shakiness, or a fast heartbeat.
