Description

Sitaglu Met Tab 50mg,500mg 14’s

Sitaglu Met Tab 50mg,500mg 14’s is used with a proper diet and exercise program and possibly with other medications to control high blood sugar. It is used in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems.

Metformin and sitagliptin combination should be taken with meals to help reduce any stomach upset. Take the extended-release tablets as directed in the evening. Swallow the extended-release tablet or immediate-release tablet whole. Do not crush, break, or chew it.
Sitagliptin will decrease postprandial blood glucose and mildly lower fasting blood glucose for a total A1C reduction around 0.8 percent. It is more expensive than other options, such as sulfonylurea hypoglycemics. It is not known whether sitagliptin has any effect on diabetes-related morbidity or mortality.

Triple therapy: This medicine is used with metformin and a sulphonylureas or glitazone for treating diabetes 2 that is inadequately controlled by dual therapy.
