How it works
Sitagliptin is an anti-diabetic medication. It works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces the fasting and postmeal sugar levels.
Metformin is an anti-diabetic medication. It lowers the production and absorption of glucose in your body and allows better use of existing insulin.
