    Expert advice for Metformin + Voglibose

    • You have been prescribed this combination medicine as it can control blood sugar better than metformin alone.
    • You should continue to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and take your other diabetes medicines along with Metformin + Voglibose.
    • Take it with food to lower your chance of having an upset stomach.
    • It can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) when used with other antidiabetic medicines, alcohol or if you delay or miss a meal. Monitor your blood sugar level regularly 
    • Always carry some sugary food or fruit juice with you in case you experience hypoglycemia symptoms such as cold sweats, cool pale skin, tremor, and anxious feeling.
    • Tell your doctor immediately if you experience any deep or rapid breathing, persistent nausea, vomiting or stomach pain as Metformin + Voglibose may cause a rare but serious condition called lactic acidosis, which is an excess of lactic acid in the blood.
