Metformin (Glucophage®) is licensed to help decrease the amount of sugar in the blood in people with type 2 diabetes. The medication controls blood sugar levels by helping to decrease the amount of sugar produced by the liver and to decrease the amount of sugar the body absorbs. Prior to taking metformin, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you may have, such as kidney or liver problems, congestive heart failure, or any allergies. As with any medication, there are potential side effects of metformin, such as diarrhea, indigestion, and nausea.
