Frequently asked questions for Teneligliptin

Q. Can I take Tenali with metformin?
Yes, Tenali 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 Tenali different from Vildagliptin?
Tenali 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, Tenali 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, Tenali does expire. Please check the expiry date written on the pack and it refers to the last day of that month. Do not use Tenali after the expiry date.
Q. How is Tenali similar to linagliptin?
Both Tenali and linagliptin belong to the same class of drugs with a similar mechanism of action and efficacy to lower blood sugar levels and HbA1c. Both have a similar side effect profile and both are safe in patients with underlying kidney disease.
Tenali is not a controlled substance. It is available when prescribed by a doctor.
Q. Is Tenali better than sitagliptin and alogliptin?
Tenali, sitagliptin, and alogliptin belong to the same class of drugs. They have a similar mechanism of action and efficacy to lower blood sugar levels and HbA1c. However, Tenali is safe to use in patients with underlying kidney disease while a dose adjustment is needed in patients with moderate to severe renal failure with sitagliptin or alogliptin.
Tenali is usually to be taken once a day with or without food. Take it preferably at the same time every day. Read the product label carefully before use and follow your doctor's advice.
