How Metaglez Forte Tablet works

Metaglez Forte Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Glipizide and metformin. Glipizide is a sulfonylurea which works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas in order to lower the blood glucose. Metformin is a biguanide which decreases the production and absorption of sugar in your body and allows better use of existing insulin. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar.
