The metformin pills are designed to help a person with type II diabetes control their blood sugar better. If a sufferer cannot control the amount of sugar taken in by their body (e.g. a rigidly controlled diet) then they are put on the metformin which will help the body process the excess sugar intake (either excessive or varied). If a person misses a dose it can lead to mood swings, confusion, general frustration, tiredness, "drunken-like" behviour and short-temperdness (check spelling!)

It's not prescribed as a weight loss product.

Hope this helps x
