Drug Name

Pioglitazon (Pioglitazone/Metformin) 

Drug Uses

Pioglitazon is used for treating type 2 diabetes. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may be used alone or with other antidiabetic medicines.
 
How to use

Use Pioglitazon as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
An extra patient leaflet is available with Pioglitazon . Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.
Take Pioglitazon by mouth with meals.
Take Pioglitazon on a regular schedule to get the most benefit from it. Taking Pioglitazon at the same times each day will help you remember to take it.
Continue to take Pioglitazon even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Pioglitazon is a biguanide and thiazolidinedione antidiabetic combination. It works by decreasing the amount of sugar the liver produces and the intestines absorb. It also helps to make your body more sensitive to the insulin that you naturally produce.
