How Eternex-M Products work

Metformin + Teneligliptin is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Metformin and Teneligliptin. Metformin is an antidiabetic medication (biguanide). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Teneligliptin 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.

Q. Is it safe to take alcohol while I am also taking Eternex-M?
No, it is not safe to take Eternex-M along with alcohol. It can increase the chances of lactic acidosis, particularly in cases of fasting, malnutrition or hepatic impairment.
Q. Can the use of Eternex-M cause hypoglycemia?
The use of Eternex-M does not usually cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level). However, hypoglycemia may occur if there is insufficient supplementation of calories while taking this medicine. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include nausea, headache, irritability, hunger, sweating, dizziness, fast heart rate, and feeling anxious or shaky. It happens more often if you miss or delay your meal, drink alcohol, over-exercise or take other antidiabetic medicine along with it. So, regular monitoring of blood sugar level is important. Always carry glucose tablets, honey or fruit juice with you.
Q. Can the use of Eternex-M lead to Vitamin B12 deficiency?
Yes, the use of Eternex-M can cause vitamin B12 deficiency on long-term use as it interferes with the absorption of vitamin B12 in the stomach. If untreated, it may cause anemia and nerve problems and the patient can feel a 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.
