Default Metformin for Weight Loss and Metabolic Control in Overweight Outpatients

Am J Psychiatry. 2013 Jul 12

Metformin for Weight Loss and Metabolic Cont... [Am J Psychiatry. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI

CONCLUSIONS Metformin was modestly effective in reducing weight and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease in clinically stable, overweight outpatients with chronic schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder over 16 weeks. A significant time-by-treatment interaction suggests that benefits of metformin may continue to accrue with longer treatment. Metformin may have an important role in diminishing the adverse consequences of obesity and metabolic impairments in patients with schizophrenia.
