What is Metformin?

Metformin (also referred to as Glucophage) is available to buy online to effectively manage and treat Type 2 diabetes. This clinically proven and highly effective prescription medication is taken orally two to three times a day in the form of a 500mg or 850mg tablet. Metformin has been used by men and women for over 40 years to safely and successfully treat Type 2 diabetes. Metformin has also undergone numerous studies during these years, confirming its safety and efficacy.

As well as being able to effectively manage Type 2 diabetes, Metformin has other benefits too, such as the ability to reduce LDL cholesterol levels (this form of cholesterol is known as "bad" cholesterol) while also increasing HDL cholesterol (known as "good" cholesterol). This medication may also aid weight loss and can be used by men and women with non-insulin dependant diabetes (NIDDM).

How does Metformin work?

Metformin, containing the active ingredient metformin hydrochloride is a type of biguanide medication and it works to help the body maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It achieves this as it lowers the amount of glucose that your intestines absorb from the food you consume and the levels of glucose that your liver produces. This medication also improves your body's ability to respond effectively to the insulin that is produced by the liver. This is achieved by increasing the muscle cells' sensitivity to insulin.

How to take Metformin?

Found below are some instructions and tips regarding how you should take Metformin pills when treating Type 2 diabetes:

  • The most commonly prescribed metformin dosage is 500mg, which will need to be taken twice a day, for example in the morning and then again in the evening.
  • You should ensure that you follow the prescription instructions carefully and do not change your metformin dosage unless you have been advised to do so by your doctor.
  • Each tablet should be swallowed whole and it is advisable to do so with food.
  • You should also be aware that you will need to regularly check your blood sugar levels.


You can buy Metformin diabetes tablets in dosages of 500mg (in a pack of 84 or 168 tablets) or 850mg (in a pack of 56 tablets). These are the recommended dosages of Metformin according to our team of UK registered doctors.

Side effects and precautions

As with most prescription medications side effects can potentially occur. However, these are normally mild in nature and will disappear quickly, if they even occur at all. Possible side effects may include fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, heartburn, or bloating. In extremely rare cases Metformin can cause lactic acidosis (increased levels of lactic acid in the blood). If any of these potential side effects persist, it is recommended that you talk to a doctor.

Before you decide to buy Metformin tablets online, please ensure that you consider the precautions listed below:

  • Metformin tablets should not be taken if you have heart failure, kidney failure, decreased kidney function, sepsis (blood poisoning), or diabetic keto-acidosis.
  • This medication shouldn't be taken if you are currently dealing with alcoholism (alcohol dependency), dehydration, or a diabetic pre-coma.
  • You should not buy Metformin during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding.
  • You must inform your doctor if you are allergic to any of the ingredients found in Metformin tablets.
