Has anyone read this or knows anything about it? Is this drug the same as Metformin?

Scary stuff, but I don't think either of the drugs they mention are the same as metformin. I think the generic name for metformin is glucophage.

Hi Lamb, as squirrel says, it's not Metformin. Metformin has been used safely for diabetes for about 50yrs so you don't need to worry. Ann.
