Were you looking for information about Metformin? Metformine is a common misspelling of metformin.
If you have type 2 diabetes, your healthcare provider may prescribe metformin (Glucophage®) to help control your glucose levels. By making insulin receptors more sensitive, the medication can help the body respond better to its own insulin (which causes a decrease in blood sugar levels). There are several different metformin products, including a liquid version, an extended-release form, and two long-acting forms. Common side effects include abdominal discomfort, indigestion, and vomiting.
