New strength of Glucophage SR

Merck Serono has a new 1000mg strength of its prolonged-release metformin preparation, Glucophage SR, indicated in the management of type II diabetes either as monotherapy or as adjunct to other therapies.

The 1000mg tablets will reduce the tablet burden on patients prescribed a high dose of metformin SR, allowing for easier administration.

The 1000mg tablets are intended for patients who have already been treated with metformin sustained-release or immediate-release preparations.
