About Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S

Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S belongs to a class of anti-diabetic drugs called 'dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4)' inhibitors used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, especially in patients whose blood sugar levels are not controlled by diet and exercise alone. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. 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 cannot perform its function in the body (insulin resistance). Middle-aged or older individuals are most likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, which is also known as adult-onset diabetes.

Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S contains Vildagliptin which works by preventing the breakdown of a chemical messenger called the 'incretin' hormone. This hormone is released after the meal to stimulate the release of insulin from the pancreas. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S increases the level of 'incretin' hormone so that sufficient insulin can be produced from the pancreas to lower raised blood sugar levels. Thus, Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S helps in controlling blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus. 

Take Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S as prescribed. Your doctor will advise you how often you take Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S based on your medical condition. You may experience dizziness, nausea, headache, excessive sweating, low blood sugar levels, and trembling in some cases. Most of these side effects of Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S is not recommended for children below 18 years of age. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or are on dialysis, please inform your doctor before taking Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S. Avoid alcohol consumption with Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S as it may increase or decrease blood sugar levels. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S is not recommended for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis and type-1 diabetes. If you have type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis (excessive levels of blood acids called ketones),  or disease of pancreas, kidney, liver, or heart problems, inform your doctor before taking Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S.

Uses of Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S

Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Medicinal Benefits

Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S contains Vildagliptin, an anti-diabetic drug used to treat type 2 diabetes, especially in patients whose blood sugar levels are not controlled by diet and exercise alone. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S prevents the breakdown of incretin hormones, namely: glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) that control blood sugar levels. Thereby, increases the levels of these two hormones which are released after a meal. Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S increases insulin production by the pancreas and decreases glucagon production by the liver. Thus, it helps to control blood sugar levels and prevent further complications due to diabetes. Proper diet and regular exercise along with Vildavas 50Mg Tab 14'S, will give better results.
