💊 Profile

Phenformin hydrochloride is a biguanide antidiabetic. Although it is generally considered to be associated with an unacceptably high incidence of lactic acidosis, often fatal, it is still available in some countries for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Phenformin was implicated in the controversial reports of excess cardiovascular mortality associated with oral hypoglycaemic therapy.
