Alert Follow a routine of proper diet, regular exercise, and regular blood sugar testing given by your doctor while on Voglibose.

In case of low blood sugar, use glucose (dextrose), not sugar or fruits, to treat symptoms of low blood sugar. Gas, diarrhea, upset stomach, or stomach pain may occur initially during the first few weeks of treatment with Voglibose. These will improve with time. Your doctor may prescribe special diet to help lessen these side effects. If any of these effects continue or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist at once. Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Voglibose before undergoing any medical, dental or surgical care. Lab tests, including fasting blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin and liver function tests may be performed to monitor whether your blood sugar is under control or for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments. Do not use Voglibose in CHILDREN. PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: Voglibose should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Do not breast-feed while taking Voglibose. Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Voglibose.

Information for patients
Drug Information Metformin is used alone or with other medications, including insulin, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Metformin helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood. Metformin is not used to treat type 1 diabetes (condition in which the body does not produce insulin and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood).
