Metformin lowers glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from the intestines, and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin
Vildagliptin is a DPP-4 inhibitor that increases the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreases the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces both fasting and postmeal sugar levels

The symptoms are more likely to be noticed if you miss or delay your food, drink alcohol, over-exercise, or take any other antidiabetic medicine along with it. So, regular monitoring of blood sugar levels is important. It is recommended to always carry glucose tablets, honey, or fruit juice with you

Symptoms of lactic acidosis may include muscle pain or weakness, dizziness, tiredness, feeling of cold in arms and legs, difficulty in breathing, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, or slow heart rate. If you have these symptoms, stop taking Intaglip-M Tablet and immediately consult your doctor
