Repaglinide 2 MG + Metformin Hcl 500 MG
10X10 TABS (ALU-ALU)
Metformin and repaglinide are oral diabetes medications that help control blood sugar levels. Repaglinide works by causing the pancreas to produce insulin. Metformin works by decreasing glucose (sugar) production in the liver and decreasing absorption of glucose by the intestines.
This diabetes medication is a combination of 2 drugs (repaglinide and metformin). It is used along with a diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. Repaglinide works by stimulating the release of your body’s natural insulin. Metformin is a biguanide and works by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. Both of these medications work by helping to restore your body’s proper response to the insulin you naturally produce.
SIDE EFFECTS :
Nausea, diarrhoea, and upset stomach may occur as your body adjusts to the metformin. Weight gain and joint pain may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. If stomach symptoms return later (after you are on the same dose for several days or weeks), tell your doctor right away. Stomach symptoms that occur after the first days of your treatment may be a sign of lactic acidosis.
