About Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s

Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s belongs to the class of anti-diabetic drugs. It is used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar levels. It occurs when the insulin (a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas) is resistant in breaking the glucose to produce energy (insulin resistance) or the pancreas (an organ behind the stomach) produces little or no insulin at all.

Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s is composed of two medicines, namely voglibose and metformin. Voglibose belongs to the class of alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. It is used in the treatment of diabetes mellitus and acts by delaying glucose absorption. Metformin belongs to the class of biguanides and is used to manage blood sugar levels, particularly in obese patients.

Voglibose acts by inhibiting the intestinal enzymes, which break complex sugars into simple sugars such as glucose. This process prevents the rise of blood glucose levels. Metformin exhibits non pancreatic effect to reduce serum glucose levels without increasing insulin secretion. It is also known as an insulin sensitizer as it increases the effects of insulin. Metformin is considered to be a unique anti-diabetic drug since it does not cause hypoglycemia (lowered blood sugar levels).

Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s is an orally administered drug. Take this drug with food at regular intervals as prescribed by your doctor to avoid stomach upset. Do not crush, chew or break the tablet. Your doctor will decide the dosage form, and this may change timely depending on your blood sugar levels. Do not stop taking Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s on your own, since it may cause a rise in your blood sugar levels leading to other health issues like kidney damage, blindness and loss of limbs. The common side effects of Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s include nausea, vomiting, changes in taste, diarrhea, dizziness, stomach pain, shortness of breath, skin rash, bloating, and flatulence (intestinal wind/gas). Although not everyone experiences these side effects, if they occur, seek medical attention.

Before starting Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s, let your doctor know if you have any medical history of anaemia (low hemoglobin levels), seizures (fits), heart, kidney, and liver diseases. Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s does not cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels). However, when used with other diabetic drugs like insulin or sulfonylureas, it can lead to hypoglycemia. Also, speak to your doctor if you are on restricted food or fluid intake since Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s causes dehydration, low blood sugar, and kidney damage. Do not take Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s if you have gastrointestinal diseases like ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. Do not take or stop Advog M 0.3 Tablet 10’s, if the doctor did not advise you to do so.
