Non insulin-dependent diabetes (type 2) in adults when dietary measures, physical exercise and weight loss alone are not sufficient to control blood glucose.
The daily dose may vary from 1 to 4 tablets per day, i.e. from 30 to 120 mg taken orally in a single intake at breakfast time.
If a dose is forgotten, there must be no increase in the dose taken the next day.
As with any hypoglycaemic agent, the dose should be adjusted according to the individual patient’s metabolic response (blood glucose, HbAlc).
The recommended starting dose is 30 mg daily.
