What is Komboglyze?
Komboglyze is a medication against diabetes. This medicine contains two active ingredients: saxagliptin and metformin. Both drugs lower the sugar level in your blood. You can order Komboglyze online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Doctors prescribe Komboglyze in case of diabetes type 2. In this condition, the pancreas does not generate enough insulin and the body responds inadequately to the insulin. The result is high blood sugar, which is harmful to the body. Komboglyze lowers the blood sugar level in a number of ways. The ingredient saxagliptin ensures that the body produces less glucose after meals and that the insulin levels are stabilized. Metformin lowers the blood sugar level and also ensures that it reduces the appetite. This combined medication is often used when a treatment with metformin or with saxagliptin (or a similar drug) does not have the desired effect.
How to use Komboglyze?
Take the tablet Komboglyze preferably during or immediately after a meal. This reduces the chance of stomach problems. Swallow the tablet without chewing with plenty of water. This drug is only effective if you combine it with a diet and enough exercise. A doctor can advise you about this.
The partner pharmacies offer Komboglyze online in various strengths. A doctor knows which dosage is best to use. Unless a doctor prescribes otherwise, the usual dosage is as follows:
- Adults: 1 tablet twice daily.
Do not deviate from the prescribed dosage and read the instructions before use. Komboglyze is not suitable for children under 18 years.
Most people can take Komboglyze without any problems. Occasionally you may experience side effects such as:
