Description

Metformin Hydrochloride is an oral antidiabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Each film-coated tablet contains metformin hydrochloride, typically in doses of 500mg or 850mg. This pack contains 84 tablets, providing a convenient supply for ongoing diabetes management.

How It Works

Metformin works by decreasing the amount of sugar produced by the liver and increasing the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin. It also helps in improving the absorption of glucose by cells and reducing the amount of glucose absorbed from the intestine. By lowering blood sugar levels, metformin helps to control hyperglycemia and reduces the risk of complications associated with diabetes.
