Information about Tab. Glycomet SR-850mg

Glycomet contains Metformin as the active ingredient which is an anti-diabetic medication (biguanide). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying sugar (glucose) absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.

Metformin works by decreasing hepatic glucose production by inhibiting gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis. It delays intestinal absorption of glucose and enhances insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilisation.




Glycomet is used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is used in addition to diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes.

Direction to Use
