Biguanides are not only antidiabetic medications. They also include proguanil (antimalarial), chlorhexidine gluconate (antimicrobial/antiviral), 2-guanidinebenzimidazole (decreases gastic acid secretions). How can we modify the article to include the broad spectrum of the biguanide and its derivatives? rmosler 08:13, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Agree. According to this source, Chlorhexidine is "hexamethyl bischlorophenyl biguanide". Should it be categorised as a biguanide and mentioned here? This is a major antiseptic. Colin°Talk 20:07, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Structure and name[edit]

It looks like a bi-Guanidine. Can we say if this is the origin of the name ? - Rod57 (talk) 12:57, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
