More information about Competact
Competact is an oral prescription treatment, used in the effective treatment of type 2 diabetes, particularly for individuals who are overweight or who struggle to make lifestyle changes. This treatment is also prescribed to individuals with blood sugar that can't be controlled by just the maximum tolerated dosage of Metformin.
Competact comes in tablet form, and works by lowering blood sugar levels. Both men and women above the age of 18, with type 2 diabetes, can use it.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition that involves the decreased function of the pancreas, which cannot make enough insulin to moderate blood glucose levels. Competact contains two active ingredients - pioglitazone and metformin; each one having a different mode of action.
There are a variety of benefits that can be experienced when using Competact.
With Competact, you should take one tablet in the morning and one in the evening, either with or without food. If you find that the tablets upset your stomach, this can be minimised by taking the tablets with or just after food. They should be swallowed with a drink of water. For patients who are changing from Metformin only to Competact, you will generally be advised to add pioglitazone into the system slowly, so that you can safely reach the available dosage. You must always ensure that you read the instructions that come with this medication.
Competact tablets are currently only available to buy from HealthExpress in the dosages 15mg and 850mg for pioglitazone (as hydrochloride) and metformin hydrochloride respectively. This has been known to have the optimum effectiveness whilst posing minimal risk of side effects.
