Patient Discussion: Initiating Treatment

After considering all the facts, the patient agrees to follow dietary advice, follow an exercise program, start metformin at a dose of 500 mg twice daily, and to contact you if he has any adverse effects before discontinuing the medication. You send him home with the consumer research review titled “Medicines for Type 2 Diabetes: A Review of the Research for Adults” as a reference tool and advise him to call if he starts experiencing any side effects.
