Frequently asked questions about Monomet Products

Frequently asked questions about Metformin

Q. What does Monomet 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. Monomet acts in several ways to reduce the increased levels of sugar in blood. Monomet decreases the glucose production from the liver, decreases absorption of glucose from the intestine after taking food, and improves the sensitivity of the body organs and muscles to insulin. This helps improve the uptake of glucose from the blood. It helps your body respond better to the insulin it makes naturally.
Q. Does Monomet cause weight loss?
Yes, Monomet has been shown to reduce weight in people who are overweight or obese. In addition, patients who are sensitive or resistant to insulin may also show weight loss. The use of Monomet may cause modest weight loss in overweight and obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes. But, do not start taking this medicine for weight loss on you own. Consult your doctor for the same.
Q. What are the benefits of taking Monomet?
Monomet is one of the first medicines that is given to patients with high blood sugar levels. It helps control the blood sugar. 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, Monomet when taken alone rarely causes low blood sugar as it prevents the pancreas from secreting more insulin. In addition to being a great blood sugar lowering medicine, it also helps in controlling weight gain.
Q. Can Monomet make you sleepy?
Monomet usually does not cause sleepiness and is well tolerated. However, the use of Monomet may rarely cause sleep disorders and insomnia. Sleepiness may be due to a very serious side effect called lactic acidosis, particularly if your kidneys are not working properly. Contact your doctor if you feel sleepy or tired while taking Monomet.
Q. How to take Monomet?
Take Monomet with or after a meal. Do not crush or chew the tablets and swallow it with a glass of water. If your doctor has prescribed one tablet a day, take it in the morning with breakfast. If two tablets a day, then take one in the morning and other in evening with dinner. If you take three doses a day, apart from morning and evening take it with lunch. Taking Monomet with meals will reduce its digestive problems like indigestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, bellyache and loss of appetite.
