How Forminal Plus 80 mg/500 mg Tablet works

Forminal Plus 80 mg/500 mg Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Gliclazide and Metformin.

Metformin is a biguanide which works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.
