Your doctor may prescribe it alone or along with other diabetes medicines. It can be taken with or without food. The dose will depend on your condition, and blood sugar levels, but you should use it as advised by your doctor.

You should take it regularly, at the same time each day, to get the most benefit and you should not stop unless your doctor recommends it.
