Volibo R 0.3/0.5 mg is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug used to manage type 2 diabetes. It contains Voglibose and Repaglinide as the active ingredients; both the medicines work together to help control the high blood sugar levels in your body after each meal. Your doctor may prescribe Voglibose R when other similar medicines along with a restricted diet cannot control abnormally high blood sugar levels. Repaglinide increases the amount of insulin released by the pancreas. Voglibose inhibits the alpha-glucosidase enzyme, which delays the digestion and absorption of dietary polysaccharides resulting in a reduction of blood glucose.
It may cause hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) when used with other antidiabetic medicines, alcohol, or certain other medications.
It is important to take care of your limbs and report any sores or signs of infection to your doctor.
Do not take Volibo if you are allergic to Repaglinide and any of the other ingredients of the medicine. You should also avoid taking medicine if you have severe liver disease, Type 1 diabetes, high blood acid level, or have severe liver disease.
Talk to your doctor before taking Volibo R if you have a kidney problem, a severe illness, liver problems, or other health complications.
Volibo R 0.3//0.5 mg of possible side effects include stomach pain, diarrhoea, constipation, vomiting, and hypoglycaemia. Most of these are mild and resolve within a few days. If you notice any of the following side effects, discontinue treatment and contact your doctor right away:
