Information about Tab. Linamet 1G

Linamet 1G Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Metformin and Linagliptin. Metformin is an anti-diabetic medication (biguanide). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Linagliptin is a DPP-4 inhibitor which works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces both fasting and postmeal sugar levels. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar.


Metformin (1000mg) + Linagliptin (2.5mg)


Linamet 1G Tablet is used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
