Information about Gliclazide + Pioglitazone + Metformin

How Gliclazide + Pioglitazone + Metformin works

Gliclazide + Pioglitazone + Metformin is a combination of three antidiabetic medicines: Gliclazide , Pioglitazone and Metformin. They work by different mechanisms to provide better control of blood sugar when single or dual therapy is not effective. Gliclazide is a sulfonylurea which works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas in order to lower the blood glucose. Pioglitazone is a thiazolidinedione which increases insulin sensitivity. Metformin is a biguanide. It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and further increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.

Common side effects of Gliclazide + Pioglitazone + Metformin

Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose level), Nausea, Diarrhea, Headache, Edema (swelling), Anemia (low number of red blood cells), Upper respiratory tract infection, Dizziness, Vomiting, Flatulence, Bronchitis (inflammation of the airways)
