Glucofage

Were you looking for information about Glucophage? Glucofage is a common misspelling of Glucophage.
 
A healthcare provider may prescribe Glucophage® (metformin) to help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Glucophage works by lowering the amount of sugar produced by the liver and by decreasing the amount of sugar the body absorbs. Prior to taking the medication, you should discuss your medical history with your healthcare provider. Be sure to tell him or her if you have any kidney or liver problems, have had a heart attack or stroke, or if you have an upcoming surgery or procedure. Your Glucophage dosage will depend on several factors, such as other medical conditions you may have and other medications you are currently taking.
