What is Metchek (Metformin Hydrochloride) used for?

Metformin is indicated in cases of type II diabetes where where diet, exercise and weight loss have been unable to control hyperglycaemia, or in cases where insulin therapy is not an option.

Metformin is also indicated to treat obese diabetics and sometimes in insulin-dependent diabetics who are overweight.

How should I use Metchek (Metformin Hydrochloride)?

A starting dosage of 500mg once or twice a day is usually prescribed. Your doctor will gradually increase dosage as required, up to a dosage of 100mg three times a day. Regular blood tests will be scheduled to check the clinical response. When the diabetes is under control, dosage should be gradually decreased until the lowest possible dosage at which diabetic control can be maintained.

Sometimes metformin will be used in combination therapy with sulphonylurea.
