Volix M 0.2 mg/500 mg Tablet is an anti-diabetic medicine widely recommended to treat Type-2 diabetes mellitus. It is taken in combination with other anti-diabetic medicines to control blood sugar levels in the body. Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease responsible for high blood sugar levels. This condition occurs when the production of insulin (a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas) is reduced. Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd manufactures and supplies this medicine in India and overseas markets.
Volix M 0.2 mg+500 mg Tablet has two key components: voglibose and metformin. Voglibose belongs to the class of alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, and it acts by delaying glucose absorption for the treatment of diabetes mellitus.
