Glucophage is a biguanide oral anti-hyperglycaemic agent. Its mode of action is thought to be multifactorial and includes delayed uptake of glucose from the gastrointestinal tract, increased peripheral glucose utilisation mediated by increased insulin sensitivity, and inhibition of increased hepatic and renal gluconeogenesis. No hypoglycaemia occurs when Glucophage is used alone but can occur when given concomitantly with a sulphonylurea, insulin or alcohol. Non-insulin dependent diabetes when diet has failed and especially if the patient is overweight. In insulin-dependent diabetes, Glucophage may be given as an adjuvant to patients whose symptoms are poorly controlled.
