Is The Substance Of Diabetes Drugs In Bottles And Tablets?
Greetings healthy. I want to ask. I am a user of Janumet Xr bottle packaging. But in my city it is rather difficult to find the drug. There is a Janumet packaging box, and the price is very different. Is it the same content and function of the two drugs?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Janumet is a type 2 diabetes drug or diabetes that is not insulin dependent, which contains the active ingredients sitaagliptin and metformin. Obta is available in the form of XR or slow release (in bottles) and is also available in drug packaging rather than slow release. In medicine Janumet XR consists of two preparations of drugs namely Janumet XR 50/1000 and 100/1000. Generally the drug Janumet XR is given once a day or on the advice of the treating doctor, so that it can help control abnormal blood sugar for 24 hours.
Whereas Janumet in a packaging box, available in two preparations, namely 50/500 and 50/1000. The recommended dosage is no more than 100 mg of sitagliptin and no more than 2000 mg for metformin. So it needs a direct examination by a doctor to get the right dose for patients in controlling blood sugar levels.
If your parents used to use Janumet XR before, but you have difficulty getting the type of XR, then you can replace it with ordinary Janumet which is easy to get in your city. However, this type of medication should be communicated directly to your internal medicine doctor or the doctor who is treating your parents. Although in general the composition / content and function of this drug are the same and can still be given to patients, the differences in the types of XR and non-permanent require an adjustment in dosage and method of drinking by your doctor. With XR it is expected that ways to take medicine are easier / simpler and prevent the risk of forgetting to take medication.
By adjusting the dosage or the number of times you take the Janumet box medicine, it is hoped that the doctor can still evaluate and control your parents' blood sugar levels.
Physical examination and supporting examinations to determine blood sugar levels can be carried out periodically to get a dose of Janumet box drugs. So if the dosage is optimal with a box janumet, then your parents can then use the box Janumet, without worrying that medication is not available at the Pharmacy.
Therefore, immediately visit the treating doctor and discuss it well with the treating doctor.
