Often, one medicine alone may not be enough to lower blood sugar. Avandamet combines two medicines to treat type 2 diabetes Avandia (rosiglitazone) and metformin into one convenient pill.
Rosiglitazone helps your body use its own natural insulin better.
Metformin works in a number of ways, but mainly by helping your liver make less sugar.
Along with eating healthy and staying physically active, Avandamet lowers blood sugar and can help keep your blood sugar under control.*
Avandamet can begin to work in 1 or 2 weeks. It may take 2 or 3 months to see the full effect on your blood sugar level.
Since 2002, Avandamet has been used by almost a million people with type 2 diabetes. Your doctor can tell you if Avandamet is right for you.
