Glucophage - long-term downside

What is the down-side of taking Glucophage (minimum dosage) over a long period please? ## Glucophage contains the active ingredient Metformin, which is an oral antidiabetic medication.

What Are The Differences Between Diamicron And Glucophage

Teva glucophage odor

Teva glucophage metformin odor problem ## What type of odor are you referring to? Something from the person being treated with it or from the medication? If it is from the person being treated, it could be Lactic Acidosis, which can be quite dangerous and they should see their doctor immediately or go to the nearest emergency treatment facility. If you are referring to the medication itself, then it is normal for it to have an odor. Depending on the manufacturing process, it can be much more noticeable from some tablets.

Anti-Aging Drug

I've been hearing stories about people over 40 in the US taking metformin as an anti-ageing strategy. My source is pretty informal, though, and I've been wondering if anyone here knows more about it. How much are people taking? And what for, exactly? Thanks to everyone, James ## There is an interesting article on this which I have in my favorites titled 'An Effective and Underappreciated Life Extension Drug' It can be viewed at Personally I haven't ever tried using it but have always been interested in this topic as well.
