Rosiglitazone and Metformin Info

Rosiglitazone and metformin (Avandamet®) is a diabetes medication that is available by prescription only. By improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing sugar absorption into the body, the medication has been shown to be effective in reducing and controlling blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It comes in the form of a tablet and is available in four strengths, each with different amounts of metformin and rosiglitazone (the active ingredients). It is usually taken once or twice a day.
 
To help ensure a safe treatment process with rosiglitazone and metformin, your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history, including any other conditions you have and if you are taking any other medications, including vitamins or supplements. This will help him or her decide if this is the right diabetes medication for you.
