Patient :The doctor prescribed glucophage for me as a prophylactic against diabetes. Sometimes I get metaformin instead because I think they are the same. Is there a difference?
Today I went to the pharmacy and all the had was metaformin glucoclamid. Tha's the Spanish name. Is that glucosamine? Is that ok for me to take? What is the difference between that and glucophage or regular metaformin?
