Volibo R 0.2/0.5 mg is a combination of Voglibose and Repaglinide, which belongs to the group of drugs known as antidiabetic agents. It is combined with diet and exercise to treat patients with Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is when body cells do not respond to insulin (a hormone that helps regulates how your body uses sugar) normally. This causes high blood sugar level that further leads to serious health conditions.
The combined action of two active ingredients is given below:
— Voglibose is an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor, which works by inhibiting intestinal enzymes and delaying the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines. This stops the breakdown of complex sugars into simple sugar such as glucose.
— Repaglinide increases the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas by stimulating the release of insulin and helps regulate the amount of sugar in the bloodstream.
— Collectively, the fixed combination drug prevents a rise in blood sugar levels after having meals.
Volibo R 0.2/0.5 mg is not recommended in patients with type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis (serious complications associated with diabetes), severe infection, and moderate to severe liver disease. It is not recommended for use during pregnancy and in women planning for pregnancy.
Also, it is not suggested to use it while breastfeeding by the women. The antidiabetic agent is not indicated for use in children and adolescents (aged below 18 years) and in the elderly (aged above 75 years). Talk to your doctor before taking this antidiabetic medicine. Before taking the combination of Voglibose and Repaglinide, inform them if you are scheduled for major surgery, have a fever, trauma, chronic intestinal disease, infections, kidney problems, or severe illnesses.
The commonly reported side effects of Volibo R are abdominal pain, fever, diarrhoea, muscle pain, fever, muscle pain, tenderness, and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Talk to your doctor if any of these symptoms worsen. Monitoring your blood sugar levels regularly while taking antidiabetic medicine is important.
Volibo R 0.2/0.5 mg should be taken orally before or after a meal as your doctor directs. It works best if you take it at a fixed time for optimal results and do not take it more than the prescribed amount.
