About ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S

ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S belongs to a class of medicines called anti-diabetic drugs used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, especially in patients whose blood sugar levels are not controlled by diet and exercise alone. 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 is unable to perform its function in the body (insulin resistance).

ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S is a combination of two antidiabetic drugs, namely: Glimepiride and Metformin. Glimepiride works by stimulating beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Thus, insulin helps to remove sugar from the blood. Metformin PR is a prolonged-release formulation that releases the drug in smaller portions over a longer duration of time. Metformin works by reducing the sugar production by cells in the liver and delays sugar absorption from the intestines. Also, it increases the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin which enables these cells to remove sugar more effectively from the blood.

Take ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition.

If you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy, please inform your doctor before taking ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S as it may harm the unborn baby. Avoid alcohol consumption with ZIGLIM M 1MG TABLET 15'S as it may increase the risk of lactic acidosis (accumulation of lactic acid in the body).
