Volibo 0.3 mg contains the active ingredient Voglibose, an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor, which reduces intestinal absorption of starch and disaccharides by inhibiting the action of glucosidase in the intestine. This helps control your body's high blood sugar levels after each meal. Lowering blood glucose levels is an essential part of managing diabetes. It is usually prescribed when other similar medicines, along with a restricted diet, cannot control abnormally high blood sugar levels. If you can control your blood sugar levels, you will reduce the risk of getting complications of diabetes such as kidney damage, loss of limbs, and nerve problems. Voglibose reduces the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease associated with Type 2 diabetes. The medicine is only a part of the treatment program that should include a healthy diet, regular exercise, and weight reduction, as your doctor advises. Taking this medicine regularly along with proper diet and exercise will help you live a healthy life. You should keep taking it for as long as it is prescribed because it protects your life. It is important to monitor your blood sugar levels regularly while taking this medicine.
Volibo 0.3 mg should be taken just before or along with a meal. The dose and how often you need it will be decided by your doctor so that you receive the right amount of medicine to control your blood sugar levels. Do not discontinue treatment suddenly without discussing it with your doctor. Sudden discontinuation of treatment may increase your risk of serious complications like kidney damage and blindness.
Before taking Volibo 0.3 mg, inform your doctor if you have any liver or kidney problems. You should not take this medicine if you have inflammation in the bowel or have the presence of an ulcer. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking it. Please, let your doctor know about all the medicines you are taking to ensure you are safe. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption while taking the anti-diabetic drug as it may increase the risk of hypoglycaemia or low blood sugar. Volibo does not cause hypoglycemia by itself. However, whenever used in combination with anti-diabetic agents, especially insulin or sulphonylurea, it may lead to episodes of low blood sugar levels. Such episodes of hypoglycemia should be treated by taking plain glucose. Table sugar or common sugar will not help correct low blood sugar levels if you take this anti-diabetic agent.
The most common side effects of Volibo 0.3 mg medicine include stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhoea, and skin rash. Please talk to your doctor if any of these become troublesome or do not resolve within a few days.
