Any Brief Information On Medication Onglyza?
Please provide brief info about new medication ONGLYZA. Is it sumilar to any other? How does it work and what advantages (disadvantages) it has.Thanks.
You can search for drug information at the FDA. These instructions will guide your search. The generic (chemical) name is saxagliptin. It is similar to another drug sitagliptin (brand name Januvia). Both act by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas. Advantages and disadvantages should be considered in the context of all other alternatives with a health care professional familiar with your overall situation.
