Metformin (also referred to as Glucophage) is available to buy online to effectively manage and treat Type 2 diabetes. This prescription medication is taken orally two to three times a day in the form of a 500mg or 850mg tablet. Alternatively, once with an evening meal for the modified-release version (500mg, 750mg and 100mg).
