Single-ingredient acetaminophen for kids hits store shelves

BY Michael Johnsen

BY Alaric DeArment

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Boston Therapeutics is seeking approval for a generic version of a pill for Type 2 diabetes, the drug maker said.

Boston Therapeutics announced that it had filed an application with the Food and Drug Administration for chewable metformin tablets. The drug is a version of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Glucophage.

"Metformin is one of the most widely prescribed diabetes drugs in the world, and our neural chemistry polysaccharide formulation will benefit prediabetic and diabetic patients," Boston Therapeutics CEO David Platt said. "This new option in treatments fits into our pipeline of other diabetes therapeutics, including Ipoxyn for limb ischemia and PAZ-320 for blood glucose management."

They have a strict use and under particular circumstances, although I heard some people are taking it abusively in order to lose weight in a shorter period of time than a healthy diet would normally take. Come to think of it, others are even seeking treatment in order to get rid of these bad habits.
