OAKNET LIFE SCIENCES PVT LTD
Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s belongs to the group of medications called ‘antidiabetic agents’ used in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. This medication improves glycaemic control in diabetic patients in those patients who do not react well to Metformin alone. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a chronic or life-long condition in which blood sugar or glucose levels rise more than normal. It occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin (metabolizes glucose), or if produced, it cannot function properly in the body.
Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s is an extended-release tablet that has a combination of two medicines, namely: Metformin ER and Teneligliptin. Metformin comes into the category of medications known as 'biguanides', and it acts by decreasing liver glucose production and intestinal glucose uptake. On the other side, Teneligliptin works by stopping the action of the dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 enzyme which in turn increases the insulin levels in the body and reduces the glucagon levels. All of this action reduce sugar levels in the body.
