About Glucomust M Tablet

Glucomust M Tablet is used in treating type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) condition that affects the way our body processes glucose. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce enough insulin, or the insulin produced cannot perform its function in the body (insulin resistance).

Glucomust M Tablet contains Metformin and Glibenclamide. Metformin works by reducing the sugar production by cells in the liver and delays sugar absorption from the intestines. Glibenclamide works by stimulating beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Thus, insulin helps to remove sugar from the blood.

Take Glucomust M Tablet as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Glucomust M Tablet for as long as your doctor has prescribed it based on your medical condition. Sometimes, you may experience stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, headache or low blood sugar. Most of these side effects of Glucomust M Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Do not consume if you are allergic to any components in the Glucomust M Tablet. Glucomust M Tablet is not recommended for children. If you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy, please inform your doctor before taking Glucomust M Tablet. Glucomust M Tablet should be used with caution in elderly patients. Avoid alcohol consumption with Glucomust M Tablet as it may increase the risk of lactic acidosis (accumulation of lactic acid in the body). Drive only if you are alert after taking Glucomust M Tablet.
