Q. Can I take Tenefil with metformin?
Yes, Tenefil can be taken with metformin. It is a good add-on treatment if the blood sugars are very high even after taking metformin.

Q. How is Tenefil different from Vildagliptin?
Tenefil 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, Tenefil 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, Tenefil does expire. Please check the expiry date written on the pack and it refers to the last day of that month. Do not use Tenefil after the expiry date.
