Hirepa MF 1 is used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
How it works :
- This is a blend of two antidiabetic drugs: Repaglinide and metformin.
- Repaglinide is a meglitinide simple which builds the amount of insulin discharged by the pancreas. This prevents blood glucose from rising extremely high after meals.
- Metformin is a biguanide which diminishes the production and absorption of sugar in your body and allows better utilization of existing insulin. Together, they give better control of glucose.
Side Effects :
Loss of appetite,
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level)
