Indications of Glipxen 5 mg

Glipxen 5 mg is prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults to enhance glycaemic control. As monotherapy: in patients who cannot be properly managed by diet and exercise alone and for whom metformin is contraindicated owing to renal impairment or inappropriate due to intolerance. As monotherapy: in patients who cannot be properly managed by diet and exercise alone and for whom metformin is contraindicated owing to renal impairment or inappropriate due to intolerance. When diet and exercise plus metformin alone are insufficient to achieve adequate glycaemic control, combination therapy may be used. Examples include using sulphonylurea in addition to metformin when diet and exercise plus dual therapy with these drugs is insufficient to achieve adequate glycaemic control.

Theropeutic Class

Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor

Pharmacology

Glipxen 5 mg is recommended for those with type 2 diabetes mellitus to help with glycemic management. The incretin hormones GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-4) and GIP are degraded by the enzyme DPP-4, which is inhibited by it (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). By boosting the release of insulin from pancreatic beta () cells in a glucose-dependent manner and inhibiting the release of glucagon from pancreatic alpha () cells into the blood, this raises the concentrations of active incretin hormones.

Dosage & Administration of Glipxen 5 mg

You should take Glipxen 5 mg once a day. When given along with metformin, you should keep it constant. A lower dose of sulfonylurea may be used in conjunction with another medication to lessen the risk of hypoglycemia. Individuals with renal impairment: No dose modification is necessary. It may be taken at any time of the day with or without food.
