Diabetic drug Glucophage (Metformin) is a biguanide-type medication that is used along with a diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in diabetic patients. Glucophage (Metformin) works by helping restore your bodys proper response to the insulin you naturally produce, and by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, blindness and circulation problems, as well as sexual function problems (impotence). WARNING: Glucophage (Metformin) can rarely cause a condition called lactic acidosis, which can be fatal. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop any of the following symptoms of lactic acidosis: unusual tiredness (fatigue) or severe drowsiness, cold skin, muscle pain, breathing trouble or rapid breathing, unusually slow or irregular heartbeat. Lactic acidosis is more likely to occur in patients who have: heart failure, kidney or liver problems, excessive alcohol use, a lack of body fluids (dehydration), x-ray or scanning procedures that require an injectable iodinated contrast drug, surgery, a serious infection, heart attack or stroke, Also at higher risk are the elderly, especially if you are over 80 years of age and have not had kidney and liver tests.
