modeOfAction

Mode of Action of Amaryl Mv 2mg Tablet

How Does It Work?

  • This combination is known to control blood sugar to a greater extent than metformin, voglibose or glimepiride alone.
  • Insulin moves sugar (glucose) from the blood into the cells. Glimepiride lowers the blood sugar level increasing release of insulin hormone from the pancreas.
  • Metformin works by decreasing the amount of glucose absorbed from the intestine, lowering the amount of sugar created by the liver and facilitating the entry of sugar into the cells.
  • Voglibose delays digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines and thereby prevents a spike in blood glucose levels that occur after a meal.
