Description

Metformin 850mg
Therapeutic indications
- Non-insulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM, type II) and, in particular, in obese patients, when adequate dietary treatment has failed.
- Metformin 850 mg Tablets can be given alone as initial therapy, or can be administered in combination with sulphonylureas after careful assessment of the contra-indications.

Posology and method of administration
Posology

Adults with normal renal function (GFR= 90mL/min)
Dosage

Usual dosage:
The required daily dose ranges from 500mg to 3 g. Therapy should be initiated with a low dose of 500mg or 850mg daily. Depending on the metabolic state the dose can be increased stepwise at intervals of a few days up to two weeks until the therapeutically required dose has been reached. In order to minimise the gastro-intestinal side-effects the daily dose should be divided and taken with or after meals. Generally, daily doses of 1000mg to 1700mg are sufficient. If diabetic control is incomplete a cautious increase in dosage to a maximum of 2 to 3g daily is justified. No additional benefit can usually be achieved by use of doses exceeding 3g daily. Once control has been achieved it may be possible to reduce the daily dose.

Product exactly what I expected.


Metformin POM 850mg (pack of 300 tablets)

These tablets are a bit difficult to crush, I have to use a hammer (and cover the tablets with thick plastic so that they do not jump out of the feeding trough). But - we manage, and the price for these tablets is very good (especially as I am using a repeat medication slip from my vet).
