metformin (Glucophage)

Biguanides

Metformin is a biguanide used to treat type II diabetes and PCOS. It helps control blood sugar in combination with diet and exercise. Metformin is widely considered the first-line treatment for adult onset diabetes because it rarely causes hypoglycemia and can help with weight loss. It is also available as brand name Glucophage. Extended-release metformin is sold as generic metformin ER, Fortamet, and Glucophage XR. Metformin combination pills include Janumet (Januvia and metformin) and Actoplus Met (pioglitazone and metformin).
