These delays are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

General Information on Glucophage XR

Glucophage XR is an oral drug used for the management of blood sugar levels in the body and is prescribed to Type 2 diabetes patients. It belongs to the category of drugs known as anti-hyperglycemic drugs. The molecule in the drug Glucophage is metformin hydrochloride. XR stands for extended release, and it helps in reducing the frequency of dosage of a medicine. Glucophage XR, when used alongside a proper nutrition and fitness program, helps in controlling diabetes as well as preventing kidney damage, limb loss, blindness, and other problems associated with diabetes.

Glucophage XR Side Effects

Metformin hydrochloride is a widely used and well-tolerated drug. However, some patients may experience certain side effects while using this drug. Many of these side effects are digestive in nature and include diarrhea, vomiting or nausea, indigestion, discomfort in the abdominal region, and flatulence. A few patients may experience other side effects such as headache, low blood sugar, a metallic taste in the mouth, rashes, blurry vision, flushing, dizziness, sweating, palpitation and symptoms similar to flu. You must inform your doctor about the side effects, after which he/she will then change the dosage. In case you experience lactic acidosis, you must stop taking Glucophage XR immediately.

Glucophage XR Precautions

Before you buy Glucophage XR and start taking it, you must inform your doctor about any allergies you may have. You must also discuss your complete medical background with your doctor and inform him/her about any kind of problems associated with the blood, kidney, liver and breathing. If you plan to undergo a surgery, then you must inform your doctor about the drugs that you are currently using. You must reduce your alcohol consumption along with this drug as it increases the probability of developing lactic acidosis. In case you suffer from prolonged side effects such as diarrhea and vomiting, you must immediately contact your doctor. If you suffer from blurry vision while using Glucophage XR, you must avoid driving a vehicle and inform your doctor.

Glucophage XR Dosage and Administration

The medicine is supplied in a tablet form and comes in two strengths - Glucophage XR 500mg and Glucophage XR 750 mg. While the 500mg tablets are off-white in color, the 750 mg tablets are pale red in color. You must ensure that you buy Glucophage XR from an authentic source. This medicine does not require any fixed regimen. It is used based on its efficacy in controlling blood sugar levels and its tolerance by the patient. The drug should be started gradually and the dosage must be escalated slowly. This not only helps in achieving the optimum control of sugar levels, but also helps in minimizing the side effects. Glucophage XR is usually prescribed once daily to be taken with the evening meal.

Glucophage XR Interactions

Metformin hydrochloride has the potential of having drug interactions with many different types of drugs. Therefore, it is always recommended that your doctor knows about all prescribed and over the counter drugs that you use. The drugs that can produce drug interactions with Glucophage XR include decongestants such as pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine, calcium channel blockers, corticosteroids, thyroid medications, oral contraceptives, and diuretics. The drug interactions may either reduce the efficacy of the medicines or may have other side effects. This list is by no means complete, and so, you must always consult your doctor before taking Glucophage XR
