    The pill you have is Metformin HCl 1000 mg
    Manufacturer: Teva
    Generic for: Glucophage® Tablets
    Imprint Code: 9/3/72/14
    Description: Oval, White to Off-White, Scored

    You will find a description (image is unavailable for this pill) on the Teva website at tevapharmusa.com

    Metformin is used to regulate blood glucose (sugar) levels. Metformin works in three ways: first, it reduces the amount of glucose produced by your liver; second, it reduces the amount of glucose absorbed from food through your stomach; and third, it makes the insulin that your body produces work better to reduce the amount of glucose already in your blood.
    Metformin is used to treat non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM or Type II diabetes). Metformin may be used alone or together with insulin or other diabetes medicines.
