How Metformin + Gemigliptin works

Metformin + Gemigliptin is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Metformin and Gemigliptin. Metformin is an anti-diabetic medication (biguanide). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Gemigliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor which works by increasing the release of insulin from pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces both fasting and postmeal sugar levels. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar.

Headache, Nausea, Vomiting, Upset stomach, Nasal congestion (stuffy nose), Respiratory tract infection, Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar level) in combination with insulin or sulphonylurea, Diarrhea, Sore throat
