Actoplus Met Type 2 Diabetes Medicine
People with type 2 diabetes often take Actoplus Met® (pioglitazone and metformin), a medicine that combines two different active ingredients to help the body respond to its natural insulin better and to keep blood sugar levels low. It comes in tablet form and is generally taken one to two times a day.
Several different factors affect the amount of Actoplus Met a person is prescribed, such as how well their type 2 diabetes is currently controlled and what medications they have been using before. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for the next dose. In this case, skip the one you missed and resume your regular dosing schedule. Never take a double dose of this drug, as it could lead to potentially dangerous effects.
