What is Onglyza (Saxagliptin) 5mg?
Onglyza is a prescription-only antidiabetic oral medication containing saxagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor. Onglyza is supplied with 30 tablets in a package.
What is it used for?
Onglyza is typically used with a healthy diet and regular exercise to help reduce blood sugar levels in patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Onglyza can be used with other commonly prescribed antidiabetic medications, such as metformin, sulfonylureas, and even insulin. However, doses of other medications should be adjusted to accommodate a higher risk of hypoglycemia.
Why use this medication?
Onglyza has been repeatedly tested in multiple studies in patients who also took another antidiabetic medication. These studies show that when Onglyza is taken only once daily, it was capable of significantly lowering HbA1C levels. In one 24-week study where 743 patients were involved, 564 subjects took Onglyza plus metformin and 179 of them were given a placebo. After 24 weeks, patients who took Onglyza and metformin had achieved an HbA1C goal of less than 7% compared to the placebo. Onglyza is capable of reducing the amount of sugar released by the liver during the night to ensure that your blood sugar levels stay within the targeted range throughout the day. This is vital in minimizing the risk for the micro- and macrovascular complications of diabetes. It is also one of the few medications that can lower post-meal blood sugar spikes and keep them under control.Click to read more Click to read less
