How Apriglim-M Products work

Glimepiride + Metformin is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Glimepiride + Metformin1 and Glimepiride + Metformin2. Glimepiride + Metformin1 is a sulfonylurea which works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas in order to lower the blood glucose. Glimepiride + Metformin2 is a biguanide which works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.

Q. What are the possible side effects of Apriglim-M?
The use of Apriglim-M is associated with common side effects like hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level), altered taste, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, headache and upper respiratory tract infection.

Q. Can the use of Apriglim-M lead to Vitamin B12 deficiency?
Yes, the use of Apriglim-M can cause Vitamin B12 deficiency on long-term use. It interferes with the absorption of Vitamin B12 in the stomach. If untreated, it may cause anemia and nerve problems and the patient can experience tingling sensation and numbness in hands and feet, weakness, urinary problems, change in mental status and difficulty in maintaining balance (ataxia). To avoid such problems, some researchers suggest an intake of Vitamin B12 from outside sources at least once every year.

Always keep a quick source of sugar like glucose tablets, honey or fruit juice with you.
Q. Is it safe to take alcohol while I am also taking Apriglim-M?
No, it is not safe to take Apriglim-M along with alcohol, as it may lower your blood sugar levels and lead to hypoglycemia. It can also increase the chances of lactic acidosis.
