Metformin is a medication used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It works by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver produces and by helping your body to better use the insulin it produces. Metformin can also help to lower your risk of developing heart disease, and it may even improve fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. In addition, metformin has been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of Type 2 diabetes in people at high risk for the condition. If you have Type 2 diabetes, metformin may be an important part of your treatment plan.

One of the most common side effects is gastrointestinal upset, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. For this reason, it is important to take metformin with food. If you experience severe or persistent gastrointestinal upset, you should contact your doctor. Other potential side effects include headache, fatigue, and dizziness. If you experience any of these side effects, you should speak to your doctor. 

Metformin is typically taken two or three times a day, with or without food. The exact dosage varies depending on the individual, but it is generally started at 500 mg per day and increased gradually over time. 

Metformin is a medication often prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes. In addition to helping to lower blood sugar levels, metformin has a number of other potential health benefits associated with better control of blood sugar levels.

Metformin can cause a modest reduction in weight in patients with Type 2 Diabetes, most likely due to side effects, like a decreased appetite and an upset stomach. However, this should never be a replacement for proper diet and exercise.
