Metformin 500 mg + Glimepiride 1mg BILAYERED TAB


Metformin 500 mg + Glimepiride 1 mg bilayered tablet is a combination medication used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. It contains two active ingredients: metformin, which belongs to the biguanide class, and glimepiride, a sulfonylurea. Metformin works by decreasing glucose production in the liver and improving insulin sensitivity in the body, while glimepiride stimulates insulin release from the pancreas, thereby reducing blood sugar levels.
