Drugs used in diabetes
Add-on combination therapy
Onglyza is indicated in adult patients aged 18 years and older with type-2 diabetes mellitus to improve glycaemic control:
- in patients inadequately controlled by diet and exercise alone and for whom metformin is inappropriate due to contraindications or intolerance;
as dual oral therapy:
- in combination with metformin, when metformin alone, with diet and exercise, does not provide adequate glycaemic control;
- in combination with a sulphonylurea, when the sulphonylurea alone, with diet and exercise, does not provide adequate glycaemic control in patients for whom use of metformin is considered inappropriate;
- in combination with a thiazolidinedione, when the thiazolidinedione alone with diet and exercise, does not provide adequate glycaemic control in patients for whom use of a thiazolidinedione is considered appropriate;
as triple oral therapy:
- in combination with metformin plus a sulphonylurea when this regimen alone, with diet and exercise, does not provide adequate glycaemic control;
as combination therapy with insulin (with or without metformin), when this regimen alone, with diet and exercise, does not provide adequate glycaemic control.
