    Metformin+Miglitol is used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    How metformin + miglitol works

    This is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Metformin and miglitol.

Miglitol inhibits the intestinal enzymes that cause breakdown of complex sugars into simple sugars such as glucose. This prevents blood glucose from rising very high after meals.
