News: Prescriber's Letter December 2015

Diabetes patients will need your help sticking with metformin...since about 1 in 3 patients will have GI problems with it. 
   We know metformin is our go-to med for type 2s...due to well-established safety and efficacy, possible CV benefits, and low cost. Plus it seems safer than previously thought in stable renal insufficiency
   But GI side effects can lead to poor adherence.
