Were you looking for information about Glucophage? Glucaphage is a common misspelling of Glucophage.
Glucophage® (metformin) is a prescribed medication that is used to help control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Because Glucophage does not increase the amount of insulin produced by the body, it is less likely to cause dangerously low blood sugar, as many other diabetes medications can do. Glucophage comes in a tablet form that is taken by mouth one to three times daily. There are potential side effects of Glucophage, such as weakness, indigestion, and abdominal discomfort.
