Merck Serono has launched a new powder formulation of Glucophage (metformin) for the management of type II diabetes.
Glucophage powder is available in sachets of 500mg and 1000mg.
The powder is bioequivalent to the Glucophage tablets, allowing more choice for patients and potentially increasing concordance.
The contents of the sachets should be mixed with 150ml of water to produce a solution to be drunk immediately.
