How does Galvus work?
Type-2 diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas does not make enough insulin to control the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood or when the body is unable to use insulin effectively. The active substance in Galvus, vildagliptin, is a dipeptidyl-peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. It works by blocking the breakdown of ‘incretin’ hormones in the body. These hormones are released after a meal and stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin. By increasing levels of incretin hormones in the blood, vildagliptin stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin when blood glucose levels are high. Vildagliptin does not work when the blood glucose is low. Vildagliptin also reduces the amount of glucose made by the liver, by increasing insulin levels and decreasing the levels of the hormone glucagon. Together, these processes reduce blood glucose levels and help to control type-2 diabetes.
How to take vildagliptin
Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer’s printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about vildagliptin tablets and will provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you may experience from taking them.
Take vildagliptin exactly as your doctor tells you to. Swallow the tablets with a drink of water.
The usual dose is one 50 mg tablet taken twice a day (Galvus® brand), although sometimes only one dose a day is needed depending on what other medicines you are taking. Your doctor will tell you how many doses you should take and this information will also be printed on the label of the pack of tablets to remind you. If you have been told to take one dose of vildagliptin each day, take it in the morning. If you have been told to take two doses each day, take your first dose in the morning and the second dose in the evening. You can take the vildagliptin tablets before, during or after meals.
If you have been prescribed a combination tablet of vildagliptin with metformin (Eucreas® brand) you should take one tablet twice a day, just after meals. Taking the tablets with food will reduce the risk of stomach upset which is a side-effect of metformin. There are two strengths of Eucreas® tablet – both strengths contain the same amount of vildagliptin but the amount of metformin differs. You will be prescribed the strength of tablet that fits with your current metformin dose.
If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember (unless it is nearly time for your next dose, in which case leave out the missed dose). Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose.
