DIBETA GB TABLET
DIBETA GB TABLET belongs to the group of medications called ‘antidiabetic agents’ used in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition in which blood sugar or glucose levels rise. It occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin (metabolizes glucose) or if produced, it cannot function properly in the body.
DIBETA GB TABLET contains two medicines, namely: Metformin and Glibenclamide. Metformin acts by decreasing liver glucose production and intestinal glucose uptake. Glibenclamide increases the production of insulin by acting on the pancreas. DIBETA GB TABLET is not recommended for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

It is advised to take tablets with food in the morning. You may experience side-effects of such as nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (falling sick), diarrhoea, stomach ache and loss of appetite. It may cause vision problems. Some patients experience decline in blood sugar levels lower than normal (hypoglycemia) resulting in sweating, dizziness, headache, confusion, feeling hungry, temporary changes in vision, uneasiness, irritability and weakness.
