How Tripath 5 mg/500 mg/15 mg Tablet SR works

Tripath 5 mg/500 mg/15 mg Tablet SR is a combination of three antidiabetic medicines: Glibenclamide, metformin and pioglitazone. They work by different mechanisms to provide better control of blood sugar when single or dual therapy is not effective. Glibenclamide 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. Pioglitazone is a thiazolidinedione which works by increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.
