Vildagliptin / Metformin hydrochloride Accord is a diabetes medicine that is used in addition to diet and exercise to improve control of blood glucose (sugar) levels in adults with type 2 diabetes.
Metformin is an anti-diabetic medication (biguanide). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin. Vildagliptin is a DPP-4 inhibitor which works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces both fasting and postmeal sugar levels. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar.
