વારંવાર પુછવામાં આવતા પ્રશ્નો

Q. What does Okamet 500 Tablet do exactly?

People with type 2 diabetes are not able to make enough insulin or respond normally to the insulin made by their bodies. When this happens, the concentration of sugar/glucose increases in the blood. Okamet 500 Tablet acts in several ways to reduce the increased levels of sugar in blood. Okamet 500 Tablet decreases glucose production from the liver and decreases absorption of glucose from the intestine after taking food while improving the sensitivity of the body organs and muscles towards insulin. This helps improve the uptake of glucose from the blood. It also helps your body to respond better to the insulin it makes naturally.

Q. Does Okamet 500 Tablet cause weight loss?

Yes, Okamet 500 Tablet has been shown to cause weight loss in people who are overweight or obese. It may also cause a modest loss in weight in those overweight and obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes. In addition, patients who are sensitive or resistant to insulin may also show weight loss. But, do not start taking this medicine for weight loss on your own. Consult your doctor for the same.

Q. What are the benefits of taking Okamet 500 Tablet?

Okamet 500 Tablet is one of the first medicines that is given to patients with high blood sugar levels. It helps control blood sugar levels. It promotes the body’s response to the insulin made by the pancreas, decreases the amount of sugar made by the liver and decreases the amount of sugar absorbed by the intestines. Unlike other oral antidiabetic medicines, Okamet 500 Tablet when taken alone, rarely causes low blood sugar as it prevents the pancreas from secreting more insulin. In addition to being a great medicine to lower blood sugar levels, it also helps in controlling weight gain.

Q. Can Okamet 500 Tablet make you sleepy?

Okamet 500 Tablet usually does not cause sleepiness and is well tolerated. However, the use of Okamet 500 Tablet may rarely cause sleep disorders and insomnia. Sleepiness may be due to a very serious side effect called lactic acidosis, which particularly occurs if your kidneys are not working properly. Contact your doctor if you feel sleepy or tired while taking Okamet 500 Tablet.

Q. How to take Okamet 500 Tablet?

Take Okamet 500 Tablet with or after a meal. Do not crush or chew the tablets and swallow it with a glass of water.
