Frequently asked questions for Teneligliptin

Q. Can I take Afoglip with metformin?
Yes, Afoglip can be taken with metformin. It is a good add-on treatment if the blood sugars are very high even after taking metformin. The risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) is also very low with both the medicines. However, consult your doctor before taking them together as a dose adjustment may be needed.
Q. How is Afoglip different from Vildagliptin?
Afoglip and vildagliptin belong to the same class of drugs with a similar mechanism of action and efficacy to lower blood sugar and HbA1c levels. However, Afoglip is once a day medicine, safe to use and need no dose adjustment in patients with kidney disease while vildagliptin is used twice daily and needs dose adjustment in moderate to severe renal failure.
Yes, Afoglip does expire. Please check the expiry date written on the pack and it refers to the last day of that month. Do not use Afoglip after the expiry date.
Q. How is Afoglip similar to linagliptin?
