Glucophage XR works longer in your body. Glucophage XR extended-release tablets are a biguanide antidiabetic. It works by helping to restore your body's proper response to the insulin you naturally produce, and by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb.
