Description of Avandamet

Avandamet is a drug used to control blood sugar levels in the body. Its main ingredients are metformin and rosiglitazone, which are oral diabetes drugs. Avandamet works by reducing the sugar content produced by the liver and absorbed by the intestines. The generic name of Avandamet is metformin and rosiglitazone.

Indications & Dosage of Avandamet

Avandamet is indicated mainly for Type 2 diabetes patients who do not take insulin shots on a regular basis. Patients suffering from Type 1 diabetes should never use Avandamet.

Avandamet is available in three different strengths- Avandamet 1/500mg, Avandamet 4/500mg, and Avandamet 4/1000mg. The dosage of Avandamet is completely dependent on what the doctor recommends. Taking a smaller or larger dose than prescribed is not recommended.
