Metformins, or oral contraceptives, are the generic version of the drug metformin, which is used to treat Type 2 diabetes.
The drug is made by Gilead Sciences, Inc. and is prescribed by more than 1,500 physicians in the United States and other countries around the world.
A recent review by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that the drug’s popularity had declined in the past two years, with a sharp decrease in sales in 2016.
“A reduction in use may reflect a reduction in cost and ease of access to the drug,” the study’s authors wrote.
The authors pointed to a trend in the use of metformins by patients with diabetes.
The study found that “more than half of metactin users reported that they were using the drug in the last year” while about 10 percent of patients reported using the medication for more than five years.
According to the Johns Hopkins study, the majority of metritis patients reported an annual change in the number of prescriptions from 3.6 million to 3.4 million prescriptions in 2016, while the use declined from 8.1 million to 7.5 million prescriptions.
However, the study found “no statistically significant changes in the prevalence of metacognosy or metacoronaviruses” in the metformine users, and metacognitive disorders in metforminers did not appear to be associated with the drug use.
The researchers said that there was no evidence that the metacornavirus (MCV) was associated with metforminic use.
A 2017 review of more than 40 studies found that metforminfused with metritis caused fewer side effects than metformic alone, such as fever and headache, and did not increase the risk of developing metritis or MCV.
