About Zilda 50 Tablet 15's

Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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. Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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.

Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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. Zilda 50 Tablet 15's increases the level of 'incretin' hormone so that sufficient insulin can be produced from the pancreas to lower raised blood sugar levels. Thus, Zilda 50 Tablet 15's helps in controlling blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus. 

Take Zilda 50 Tablet 15's as prescribed. Your doctor will advise you how often you take Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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 Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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 Zilda 50 Tablet 15's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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 Zilda 50 Tablet 15's. Avoid alcohol consumption with Zilda 50 Tablet 15's as it may increase or decrease blood sugar levels. Zilda 50 Tablet 15'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 Zilda 50 Tablet 15's.

Medicinal Benefits
