Riax-M XR 5mg/1000mg Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Saxagliptin and Metformin. Saxagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor which works by increasing the release of insulin from pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels.

It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.
