Default metformin in French

We hope we have a member in France. Does anybody know how to say extended release metformin in French as oppose to a regular one?

I came up with this, being the googling fool I am tonight.

à libération prolongée metformin

John or Judy may say otherwise.

Keep in mind that if a person is a member of this forum, any communications must be in English - rule #2.

Sadly, I am unilingual too . . . didn't even take Latin in school, although it was offered.

I will be traveling and will have to see a French speaking doc. I need my prescription refilled on the road. Kaiser only fills three months at a time and I can't get more pills for another month. I am trying to make sure I get the right drugs!

Thank you. I am writing down à libération prolongée metformin.

I don't need metformin so my experience with its names in French (where it gets an "e" on the end "metformine") is limited but this list has the marketing names under which it would be recognised over here. I think some of them (red) sound like cocktail drugs to me.
  • Avandamet (Canada)
  • Glucophage (Belgique, Canada, France, Suisse)
  • Glumetza (Canada)
  • Glycon (Canada)
  • Janumet (Canada)
  • Metfin (Suisse)
  • Metformax (Belgique)
The document that I dug out from the "Haute Autorité de Santé" makes reference only to "metformine" without specifiying the speed of release but using the name Glucophage I found this Search Result "Glucophage Xr": Glucophage, Glucophage Xr @ Trusted Tablets, suggesting that the extended release version is named quite simply Glucophage XR. (now there's a surprise )

Hope this helps.

In France, by default, pharmacies will supply generic drugs.

If for some reason, it's necessary to use a particular "named" brand, stress this to the doctor when he's writing your "ordonnance"
