How Sugamet V 0.2 mg Tablet works

Sugamet V 0.2 mg Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Metformin and voglibose.

Voglibose inhibits the intestinal enzymes that cause breakdown of complex sugars into simple sugars such as glucose. This prevents blood glucose from rising very high after meals.
