M2 PHARMA-February 27, 2017-Intellipharmaceutics wins US FDA approval for 500 mg and 750 mg Generic Glucophage
XR for type 2 diabetes
The metformin originator product, Glucophage
, was still the market leader (at 49.1% market share) even though it was priced 35% higher than the cheapest generic (Accord Metformin, with a market share of 2.6%) and 31% higher than the generic with the next highest market share (Mylan Metformin, with a market share of 14.4%).
The management plan consisted of Glucophage
500 mg one tab by mouth daily, weight loss, dietary and exercise modifications, and glucose monitoring two times every day.
(Metformin also goes by the brand names Glucophage
, Glumetza, Glucophage
XR, and Fortamet.) The reasons for its underuse are not clear, says lead researcher Tannaz Moin, MD, of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
The production agreement, under which Neopharma is working to manufacture two Merck Serono products -- Euthyrox, a hormone therapy treatment, and Glucophage
, a standard oral treatment for type 2 diabetes -- is catering to regional demand and helping to turn the UAE into a pharmaceutical export base.
"The shortage of Glucophage
has been brought to the notice of the Health Ministry and it is because of some logistical issues being sorted out between the company and the agents."
Ten tablets from each Glucophage

Upon further evaluation, Ed was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus and placed on a regimen of 20 units of glargine (Lantus[R]) insulin in the evening, 7 units of novolog (Aspart[R]) insulin with meals, and glucophage
(Metformin[R]) 500 mg twice a day.
While this is less than the reduction typically seen with the diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage
, Fortamet), it is slightly better than results seen with some of the newer drugs, such as sitagliptin (Januvia).
Initially, two Merck Serono products will be manufactured by Neopharma: Euthyrox, a hormone therapy requiring a very stringent sterile environment for production and packaging, and Glucophage
, a standard oral treatment for people suffering from type 2 diabetes that helps control blood sugar levels.
Merck Serono, a division of Merck KGaA of Germany, a global pharmaceutical and chemical company, and Neopharma earlier yesterday announced a pharmaceutical production agreement under which Neopharma will initially manufacture two Merck Serono products -- Euthyrox, a hormone therapy requiring a very stringent sterile environment for production and packaging, and Glucophage
a standard oral treatment for people suffering from type 2 diabetes that helps control blood sugar levels.
The oral hypoglycaemic drugs, diabenese, daonil and glucophage
used in this study were obtained from Nigeria-German drugs, Plc (Lagos, Nigeria).
