About Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s

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.

Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s is available in oral tablet dosage form. You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. You may experience side-effects of such as nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (falling sick), diarrhoea, headache, stomach ache, respiratory infection, weight gain, sweating, palpitations, and 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. In such cases, seek medical attention immediately.

Do not take Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s if you are allergic to any of its contents. Do not use this medicine if you have heart failure, bladder cancer, or diabetic ketoacidosis (a complication of diabetes). Supraglip-M 20/500mg Tablet 10s may cause ‘lactic acidosis’ (accumulation of lactic acid in the blood), which requires immediate medical attention. The risk increases if you are previously diagnosed with kidney or liver diseases. Do not consume alcohol (risk of lactic acidosis) or fast for prolonged periods (risk of hypoglycemia). Also, inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.
