IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OUR TELEPHONE SERVICE

Please note that from September 25 - 30, 2020 our telephone service provider will be performing system upgrades. This may result in temporary disruptions to our call center or poor connection to our agents. We are still here to serve you and handle your orders without delays. If you have trouble getting through to an agent, please feel free to leave a voicemail, send us an email, or contact us through our Live Chat service. Thank you for your support.

Covid-19 Service Update

At North Drugstore, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting us all, there have been some changes within our industry in general, and in our company specifically, that we want to make our customers aware of.

Call Center

Our current call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm, seven days a week. If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

Shipping

We are currently seeing delays in our regular shipping times. Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may now take an additional 2 – 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These are industry-wide delays and are mainly occurring due to disruptions in local postal delivery in the countries where our customers live. They are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: We are now resuming our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our Commitment

If you have any questions about any changes in our service please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure the timely fulfillment and delivery of all orders. The health of our customers and staff is our highest priority and we remain committed to providing service at the highest level.

We thank you for your support in these challenging times.

Full information about Glucophage XR

General Information on Glucophage XR

Glucophage XR is used for controlling high blood sugar in diabetic patients with type 2 diabetes. Active ingredient in the medicine is Metformin, and it belongs to the class of drugs known as anti-diabetic medicines.

Controlling blood sugar helps in preventing serious problems like blindness, loss of limbs, nerve problems, kidney damage or sexual function problems in such patients. The drug works by restoring your body’s response to insulin that is produced naturally. It also reduces the sugar content produced by the liver and absorbed by the stomach or intestines.

When you buy Glucophage XR, your doctor will also recommend you to follow a regular exercise regime and a proper diet plan. This medicine is available in the form of oral tablets.

In addition to controlling high blood sugar, Glucophage XR is also used for women having polycystic ovarian syndrome. It makes menstrual cycles regular and increases a woman’s fertility.

Side effects of Glucophage XR

Glucophage XR can lead to a fatal condition known as lactic acidosis, especially if you have a liver or kidney disease, a serious infection, heavy alcohol abuse, dehydration, poor blood circulation or congestive heart failure or if you recently had a surgery, heart attack or stroke. Seek medical help immediately if you develop blue or cold skin, chills, severe dizziness, unusual tiredness, fast or difficult breathing, muscle pain, stomach pain accompanied by nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting.

You may lose too much water content from your body and you may become dehydrated, especially if you are using water pills, if you have high fever, diarrhea or vomiting or if you sweat heavily due to strenuous physical exercise or hot weather. Drink lots of fluids during Glucophage XR treatment.

As Metformin in the medicine may change your menstrual cycle and promote ovulation, you have more chances of getting an unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, it is advised to use a barrier form of contraception during the treatment, such as condoms or diaphragms.

Diarrhea, weakness, stomach upset, vomiting, nausea and metallic taste in mouth can be commonly experienced by Glucophage XR patients. Empty shells of the tablet may appear in your stools, which is harmless, as the medicine is already absorbed by your body.

Some serious side effects associated with the drug include lightheadedness, chest discomfort or pain, lightheadedness, difficulty breathing, muscle weakness or pain or persistent throat soreness.

Dosage of Glucophage XR

The dosage of Glucophage XR recommended to you depends on your medical condition and your tolerance level. However, it should not exceed Glucophage XR 2500mg for adults and Glucophage XR 2000mg for children from 10 to 16 years of age.

Usually, you will be advised to take only one tablet once in a day, preferably with your evening meal. Take the tablet whole, without crushing, chewing or dissolving it. Your treatment will start with a low dose, and it will be increased gradually depending on your response to the treatment.

Drug Interactions of Glucophage XR

Do not buy Glucophage XR if you are already taking water pills such as warfarin. Taking both these medicines together may increase your chances of getting dehydrated. Also, your doctor must know about your complete medical background as well as all the medicines that you are on.
