WHAT METFORMIN HCl PFIZER IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR

What Metformin HCl Pfizer is
Metformin HCl Pfizer contains metformin, a medicine to treat diabetes. It belongs to a group of medicines
called biguanides.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that makes your body take in glucose (sugar) from the
blood. Your body uses glucose to produce energy or stores it for future use.
If you have diabetes, your pancreas does not make enough insulin or your body is not able to use properly
the insulin it produces. This leads to a high level of glucose in your blood. Metformin HCl Pfizer helps to
lower your blood glucose to as normal a level as possible.
If you are an overweight adult, taking Metformin HCl Pfizer over a long period of time also helps to lower
the risk of complications associated with diabetes.
What Metformin HCl Pfizer is used for
Metformin HCl Pfizer is used to treat patients with type 2 diabetes (also called 'non-insulin dependent
diabetes') when diet and exercise alone have not been enough to control your blood glucose levels. It is
used particularly in overweight patients.
Adults can take Metformin HCl Pfizer on its own or together with other medicines to treat diabetes
(medicines taken by mouth or insulin).
Children 10 years and over and adolescents can take Metformin HCl Pfizer on its own or together with
insulin.

BEFORE YOU TAKE METFORMIN HCl PFIZER

Do not take Metformin HCl Pfizer

 if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to metformin or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (see 'What Metformin HCl Pfizer contains' in section 6)  if you have kidney or liver problems  if you have uncontrolled diabetes, such as severe hyperglycaemia or ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a condition in which substances called 'ketone bodies' accumulate in the blood. Symptoms include stomach pain, fast and deep breathing, sleepiness or unusual fruity odour of the breath  if you lost too much water from your body (dehydration), such as due to long-lasting or severe diarrhoea, or if you have vomited several times in a row. Dehydration may lead to kidney problems, which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis (see 'Take special care with Metformin HCl Pfizer' below).  if you have a severe infection, such as an infection affecting your lung or bronchial system or your kidney. Severe infections may lead to kidney problems, which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis (see 'Take special care with Metformin HCl Pfizer' below).  if you are treated for heart failure or have recently had a heart attack, have severe problems with your circulation or have breathing difficulties. This may lead to a lack in oxygen supply to tissue which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis (see 'Take special care with Metformin HCl Pfizer' below)  if you drink a lot of alcohol  if you are breast-feeding If any of the above applies to you, talk to your doctor, before you start taking this medicine. Make sure you ask your doctor for advice, if  you need to have an examination such as X-ray or scan involving the injection of contrast medicines that contain iodine into your bloodstream  you need to have major surgery
You must stop taking Metformin HCl Pfizer for a certain period of time before and after the examination or
the surgery. Your doctor will decide whether you need any other treatment for this time. It is important that
you follow your doctor’s instructions precisely.
Take special care with Metformin HCl Pfizer
Metformin HCl Pfizer may cause a very rare, but serious complication called lactic acidosis, particularly if
your kidneys are not working properly. Symptoms of lactic acidosis are vomiting, bellyache (abdominal
pain) with muscle cramps, a general feeling of not being well with severe tiredness, and difficulty in
breathing. If this happens to you, you may need immediate treatment. Stop taking Metformin HCl
Pfizer immediately and tell your doctor straight away.
Metformin HCl Pfizer on its own does not cause hypoglycaemia (a blood glucose level which is too low).
However, if you take Metformin HCl Pfizer together with other medicines to treat diabetes that can cause
hypoglycaemia (such as sulphonylureas, insulin, glinides), there is a risk of hypoglycaemia. If you
experience symptoms of hypoglycaemia such as weakness, dizziness, increased sweating, fast heart
beating, visions disorders or difficulty in concentration, it usually helps to eat or drink something
containing sugar.

Taking other medicines
If you need to have an injection of contrast medicines that contain iodine into your bloodstream, for
example for examinations such as X-ray or scan, you must stop taking Metformin HCl Pfizer for a
certain period of time before and after the examination
(see 'Make sure you ask your doctor for advice'
above).
Tell your doctor if you take any of the following medicines and Metformin HCl Pfizer at the same time.
You may need more frequent blood glucose tests or your doctor may adjust the dosage of Metformin HCl
Pfizer:
 angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (used to treat a variety of heart and blood vessel conditions,
such as high blood pressure or heart failure)  diuretics (used to remove water from the body by making more urine).  beta-2 agonists such as salbutamol or terbutaline (used to treat asthma)  corticosteroids (used to treat a variety of conditions, such as severe inflammation of the skin or in Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
Taking Metformin HCl Pfizer with food and drink

Do not drink alcohol when you take this medicine. Alcohol may increase the risk of lactic acidosis
especially if you have liver problems or if you are undernourished. This also applies to medicines that
contain alcohol.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
During pregnancy, you need insulin to treat your diabetes. Tell your doctor if you are, you think you might
be or are planning to become pregnant, so that he or she may change your treatment.
Do not take this medicine if you are breast-feeding or if you are planning to breast-feed your baby.
Driving and using machines
Metformin HCl Pfizer on its own does not cause hypoglycaemia (a blood glucose level which is too low).
This means that it will not affect your ability to drive or use machines.
However, take special care if you take Metformin HCl Pfizer together with other medicines to treat
diabetes that can cause hypoglycaemia (such as sulphonylureas, insulin, glinides). Symptoms of
hypoglycaemia include weakness, dizziness, increased sweating, fast heart beat, vision disorders or
difficulty in concentration. Do not drive or use machines if you start to feel these symptoms.
