Indications/Uses

Galvus Met 50mg/500mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines that control high blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This helps prevent serious complications of diabetes such as kidney damage and blindness and may also reduce your chances of having a heart attack or stroke.

Dosage/Direction for Use
Adults with normal renal function (GFR ≥ 90 ml/min): The dose of antihyperglycaemic therapy with Galvus Met should be individualised on the basis of the patient’s current regimen, effectiveness and tolerability while not exceeding the maximum recommended daily dose of 100 mg vildagliptin. Galvus Met may be initiated at either the 50 mg/500 mg, 50 mg/850 mg or 50 mg/1000 mg tablet strength twice daily, one tablet in the morning and the other in the evening.
For patients inadequately controlled at their maximal tolerated dose of metformin monotherapy: The starting dose of Galvus Met should provide vildagliptin as 50 mg twice daily (100 mg total daily dose) plus the dose of metformin already being taken.
For patients switching from co-administration of vildagliptin and metformin as separate tablets: Galvus Met should be initiated at the dose of vildagliptin and metformin already being taken.
For patients inadequately controlled on dual combination with metformin and a sulphonylurea: The doses of Galvus Met should provide vildagliptin as 50 mg twice daily (100 mg total daily dose) and a dose of metformin similar to the dose already being taken. When Galvus Met is used in combination with a sulphonylurea, a lower dose of the sulphonylurea may be considered to reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia.
For patients inadequately controlled on dual combination therapy with insulin and the maximal tolerated dose of metformin: The dose of Galvus Met should provide vildagliptin dosed as 50 mg twice daily (100 mg total daily dose) and a dose of metformin similar to the dose already being taken.
