Xeglyza 50mg Tablet

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Xeglyza 50mg Tablet is a medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is used together with a healthy diet and regular exercise to control blood sugar levels. This helps to prevent serious complications of diabetes like kidney damage and blindness.

Xeglyza 50mg Tablet is normally prescribed when diet and exercise alone or other medicines do not prove sufficient to control your blood sugar level. It may prescribe alone or in combination with other diabetes medicines. It can be taken with or without food. The dose will depend on your condition and blood sugar levels. Use it strictly as advised by your doctor.

You should take it regularly at the same time each day to get the most benefit. Do not stop taking the medicine unless advised by your doctor. It is important to stay on the diet and exercise program recommended by your doctor while taking this medicine. Your lifestyle plays a big part in controlling diabetes.

The most common side effects of Xeglyza 50mg Tablet include hypoglycemia, tremor, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. It is important to recognize the symptoms of hypoglycemia (such as lightheadedness, sweating, dizziness, fainting, and dry mouth) and know how to deal with it. You can carry sugar or glucose candy and have them to control your symptoms if you experience any. Contact your doctor if the side effects do not go away or worry you.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have ever had kidney disease, heart disease, or pancreas problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking it. Some other medicines you are taking may interfere with this medicine's working. So, make sure your doctor knows about all the other medicines you are using. Limit your alcohol intake while taking this medicine because it can increase your risk of developing low blood sugar levels. You may need regular tests such as kidney function and blood glucose levels to check that the medicine is working properly.

Benefits of Xeglyza Tablet

In Treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Xeglyza 50mg Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called DPP-4 inhibitors. It works by helping to increase the amount of insulin your body produces after a meal and to stop your body from releasing too much glucose (sugar) into your blood. This way it lowers the blood glucose levels in your body. This medicine is usually taken once a day and has relatively few common side effects.

Lowering blood glucose levels is an essential part of managing diabetes. If you can control the level you will reduce the risk of getting any of the serious complications of diabetes such as kidney damage, eye damage, nerve problems, and loss of limbs. Proper control of diabetes can also reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Taking this medicine regularly along with a proper program of diet and exercise will help you live a normal, healthy life. You should keep using it for as long as it is prescribed because it is protecting your future health.
