Glucophage belongs to the class of drugs known as oral hypoglycemics and it is used to lower blood pressure. Typically, Glucophage is prescribed to patients with type 2 diabetes in order to help them maintain their blood glucose levels. Glucophage is especially useful when diet, exercise, and weight loss attempts have failed to produce lower blood sugar. Glucophage and generic metformin work by reducing the amount of glucose produced in the liver and by improving the absorption of glucose into body tissues. Glucophage has been very helpful in preventing diabetes-related problems in overweight patients.

Metformin, the generic alternative is not manufactured by the same company that makes the brand product (Glucophage).
