Buy Avandamet brand or generic Metformin/Rosiglitazone prescription drug from Canada
Why is Avandamet prescribed?
Rosiglitazone maleate and Metformin hydrochloride (Avandamet) is prescribed to control and manage type 2 diabetes. It should be taken in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise to improve blood sugar control. It is not prescribed for the management of type 1 diabetes.
What does it do?
In type 2 diabetes, the body is unable to use insulin normally, causing high blood sugar levels. If this is not properly controlled, serious health problems may develop over time. Avandamet contains two medications, that help control blood sugar levels using different mechanisms.
Rosiglitazone maleate allows the body to control blood sugar levels by increasing the body’s response to insulin (a hormone produced by the pancreas that is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels). It belongs to a drug class called thiazolidinediones.
Metformin hydrochloride works to decrease the liver’s production of glucose, decreases the amount of glucose absorbed from foods, and improves the body’s response to insulin. It belongs to a drug class called biguanides.
How should I take it?
Avandamet and its generic equivalents are currently available in 2mg/1000mg tablets. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
