Buy Metformin Tablets Online

The doctors at Simple Online Pharmacy can prescribe Metformin for those who have been diagnosed with diabetes and previously been prescribed the treatment. This service is for people who are unable to obtain a prescription for their GP in certain circumstances, and just need a temporary refill. It is still important to use your GP to get your diabetes medication regularly, and to have regular check ups with your GP or nurse, so they can check that your condition is stable.

Metformin is one of the most common treatments for diabetes, and helps bring blood sugar under control. You should take the dosage that has previously been determined by your regular doctor. Once you have completed the online doctor consultation, our doctor will review your assessment and prescribe the selected medication if it is safe. Our pharmacy will then dispense and dispatch your prescription to your door.

Diabetes treatment options


    Diabetes is a common condition which affects the body’s ability to control sugar.

    There are currently around 3.9  million people in the UK who have diabetes. Diabetes is a long-term condition, and is split in to two subtypes; Type 1 and Type 2. Type 2 is the most common, and affects around 90% of those who have diabetes. This type of diabetes occurs when he body doesn’t produce enough insulin to regulate blood glucose levels.

    The main treatment for Type 2 diabetes is Metformin. Metformin works by reducing the glucose that your liver releases into the bloodstream. In addition to this main mode of action, Metformin also makes your body’s cells more responsive to insulin.
