There is nothing wrong with this drug. It has been used for a long time in many countries, so if you are prescribed it, you can safely take it. I, too, when I found out about my diagnosis, I couldn’t find my place. But now after six years I’m used to everything. I know it’s not a sentence. The main thing is to watch your diet and take your medicine in time. By the way, you can read about this drug here https://www.charityrx.com/drug/metformin. It says it all very well and in simple words. I can tell you one thing, you should always think about the good and the good will happen to you. You should not give up. Believe me, a person who has had this diagnosis for six years. Good luck to you!
