Gitae tablets are available in 1mg, 2mg, 3mg and 4mg doses. The dose and frequency of the medicine will be decided by your doctor.

The dose should be taken whole with some liquid shortly before or during breakfast or if you skip breakfast shortly before or during your first main meal.
Q. What can happen if I take more than the recommended dose of Gitae?
Overdose of Gitae may significantly decrease your blood sugar levels (a condition called hypoglycemia).
