One of the few medications used to control diabetes is metformin. The drug is especially designed for individuals with type 2 diabetes. It works by regulating the blood sugar levels.

For immediate-release, an initial dose of 500mg twice every day. Alternatively, you doctor may decide to put you on a 850mg once every day. You need a maintenance dose of 2000mg daily. For extended release, 500 to 1000mg of the drug is needed once per day. Take the doses with meals. You also need to watch out for possible side effects. If any shows up, report to your doctor immediately.
