What does metformin do?

Yes Doctor, I must apologize for bothering you, I did not know I had to pay and become a member for questions to you. I know you do not work for free, but it just desperately looking for an answer as my husband went to sleep and I do not know what will the 1000 metformin pill will do and what time I am supposed to wake him up from the 275 count. I saw you reviewed my question, but I can not make the payment now. I guess I just have to wait to see what happens. Anyway you have my email, if you feel you need to email me please do so.
