What is Komboglyze?

Komboglyze is a treatment medication for type-2 diabetes that contains two active ingredients: saxagliptin and metformin. They are pills that are normally taken twice a day with meals. These agents help the body make better use of insulin and therefore lower the amount of sugar in the blood. Komboglyze is sold with a medical prescription only.

How does it work?

The main active ingredients of this diabetes treatment medication, Saxagliptin, and metformin work together to control your blood sugar. Insulin levels increase after eating. They also reduce the amount of sugar your body makes. Along with diet and exercise, they help lower your blood sugar. This medicine can be used alone or together with other antidiabetic medicines including insulin.

To control diabetes, you must continue diet and exercise, even when taking this medication. That is why it is important that you follow the recommendations on diet and exercise provided by your doctor or health personnel.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Komboglyze is indicated in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, along with diet and exercise, to improve glycemic control:

  • In patients not adequately controlled with the maximum tolerated dose of metformin.
  • in combination with other medicines for the treatment of diabetes, including insulin.
  • in patients not adequately controlled with metformin and these drugs.
  • in patients already receiving treatment with the combination of saxagliptin and metformin in a separate manner.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.

If your doctor prescribes this medicine along with a sulfonylurea or insulin, remember to take this other medicine as your doctor has told you to get the best results for your health.

How much should you take

The amount of this medicine you will take varies depending on your condition and the doses you are currently taking of metformin and / or individual saxagliptin and metformin tablets. Your doctor will tell you exactly what dose of this medicine to take.

The recommended dose is one tablet twice a day.

If you have reduced kidney function, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose.

How to take this medicine

Take it with meals to reduce the likelihood of stomach upset.

Diet and exercise

To control diabetes you must continue diet and exercise, even if you are taking this medicine.
