Metformin can also decrease the chance of developing diabetes in someone
with impaired glucose tolerance, improve lipid profile, decrease weight
gain, especially in people who are on drugs such as antipsychotics which
induce weight gain. There is even some evidence that it can improve
depressed mood. It is an old, well-tested and cheap drug.
