Attention Nibinamik Patients with Diabetes:

Click the image to view full memo.

A recent recall on Metformin has been issued due to high levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine which is safe is small doses but over a long time, can cause cancer.

High levels were found only in a certain brand of Metformin, “RAN-Metformin,” which is not the brand that Remedy’s stocks so the brands of Metformin that patients in Nibinamik have are so far thought to be quite safe.

We will continue to monitor the situation but for now, DO NOT STOP YOUR PRESCRIBED METFORMIN as the risks of high blood sugar are worse than the risks of the Metformin.
