What is Glucophage SR?

Glucophage SR is an FDA approved prescription medication that is used to treat and manage Type 2 diabetes, as well as non-insulin dependant diabetes (NIDDM). Glucophage SR tablets each have an active ingredient called Metformin hydrochloride belonging to the group of medicines called Biguanides, used in the treatment of diabetes.

You can buy this prescription medication online for the effective treatment of type 2 diabetes, in cases where your diet and exercise changes alone have not been enough to control blood glucose. Glucophage SR tablets are specially made to release the drug slowly in your body and are therefore different to many other types of tablets containing Metformin. Glucophage SR is taken orally once or twice a day in the form of a 500 mg, 750 mg or 1000 mg tablet.

Benefits of taking Glucophage SR tablets

Type 2 diabetes is the result of a deficiency of insulin, or the inability of the body to respond to insulin. Produced by the pancreas, its main responsibility is to control blood sugar levels. If these levels are not controlled adequately, then sugar levels can become too high, which can cause dangerous and severe health complications. Glucophage SR tablets make the body more sensitive to insulin, and helps the body respond better to insulin and the way it uses glucose. It is recommended in particular for people who are overweight with Type 2 or noninsulin-dependent diabetes, when dietary changes and increased exercise have failed to control blood sugar levels effectively.

Unlike other diabetes treatments, Glucophage SR comes in the form of prolonged-release tablets, which steadily release Metformin in your body throughout the day. Starting as a 500 mg dose, treatment can be adjusted and you can buy an increased dosage if necessary.

How does Glucophage SR work?

Glucophage SR's active ingredient, metformin hydrochloride, is a biguanide. It works in a number of ways to treat and manage Type 2 diabetes. It decreases the amount of glucose produced by cells in the liver, enabling cells to remove glucose from the blood more effectively. It also reduces glucose levels and on the whole enables the body to respond better to insulin. Glucophage SR is a slow release treatment, meaning a steady dose is released throughout the day.

Metformin hydrochloride - the active ingredient

Diabetes leads to problems controlling blood sugar levels. Metformin hydrochloride has many effects on the body and can help certain people with diabetes to keep their blood sugar level under control.

It is very important that your blood sugar level is well controlled. Blood sugar levels, which are too high or too low, can be dangerous. Warning signs can vary from person to person. If the usual warning signs of poorly controlled blood sugar levels change or disappear, you should contact your doctor immediately.

How to take Glucophage SR tablets

The starting dose for Glucophage SR is usually in the form of a 500mg tablet, which is taken once daily with a glass of water. If after ten to 15 days your blood levels are not controlled sufficiently, your doctor may advise that you buy an increased dosage. You should not increase your dosage yourself without speaking to your doctor. Glucophage SR tablets should not be chewed, and should always be taken with food.

Glucophage SR precautions

This medication is suitable for people with Type 2 diabetes, in particular people who are overweight and for whom diet and exercise changes have not been sufficient. It should be noted that that this medication isn't a substitute for diet and exercise, therefore, in order to get the most out of this treatment, you should still follow an exercise and diet plan.

You should not buy Glucophage SR tablets if you are allergic to metformin hydrochloride or any of the other ingredients found in this medication. Some other medical conditions and medications are incompatible with Glucophage SR tablets, which is why you should be sure to include this information while completing your consultation. You should not buy this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
