Were you looking for more information about Metformin? Metfromin is a common misspelling of metformin.
Metformin (Glucophage®) is a prescription medicine commonly used for treating type 2 diabetes. It works by decreasing the amount of sugar made by the liver, reducing the amount of sugar absorbed into the body (from the diet), and making insulin receptors more sensitive. The medication comes in both tablet and liquid form, and is typically taken once to three times a day. Common side effects that have been reported include indigestion, vomiting, and weakness.
