    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    After the predecessor drug was withdrawn from the market, I received metformin in collaboration with Repaglinid. The effect has been satisfactory so far and, apart from increased hair loss / constipation, no discernible side effects are known. But it can also come from other medicines, as I regularly take tablets with a shovel.

    Side effects: Hair loss; Constipation
