Sitapen M 50/850 mg
• Sitapen M (Metformin and sitagliptin combination) is used to treat high
blood sugar levels caused by type 2 diabetes. Metformin reduces the
absorption of sugar from the stomach, reduces the release of stored sugar
from the liver, and helps your body use sugar better. Sitagliptin helps to
control blood sugar levels by increasing substances in the body that make
the pancreas release more insulin.
• Sitapen M also signals the liver to stop producing sugar (glucose) when
there is too much sugar in the blood.
• Sitapen M does not help patients who have insulin-dependent or type 1
