Indications:JANUPTIN 50 M 500
Sitagliptin Phosphate and Metformin Hydrochloride combination is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. This medication helps to control blood sugar levels and improve glycemic control when diet and exercise alone are not sufficient.
Mode of Action:JANUPTIN 50 M 500
– Sitagliptin Phosphate: This active ingredient belongs to the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor class. It works by inhibiting the enzyme DPP-4, which in turn increases the levels of active incretin hormones, such as GLP-1 and GIP. These hormones stimulate insulin release and reduce glucagon secretion, leading to better blood glucose regulation.
– Metformin Hydrochloride: Metformin is a biguanide and works by reducing glucose production in the liver and increasing insulin sensitivity in peripheral tissues, such as muscle and fat cells. It also improves glucose uptake by cells, further aiding in blood sugar control.
Dosage and Administration:JANUPTIN 50 M 500
– The recommended dosage is one tablet of Sitagliptin Phosphate 50 mg + Metformin Hydrochloride 500 mg orally twice daily.
