About Actoplus Met

What is Actoplus Met?

Actoplus Met is a combination of two oral diabetes medications, pioglitazone and metformin, prescribed to treat Type 2 diabetes. Along with diet and exercise, it helps control blood sugar levels. Pioglitazone, a thiazolidinedione, increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin, aiding in its use; metformin, a biguanide, helps decrease glucose absorption and increases the response to insulin. This medication is not used to treat Type 1 diabetes.

How do I take Actoplus Met?

Actoplus Met is administered as a coated tablet that is taken orally once or twice a day, with food, depending on the dosage strength and requirements of the prescription. Dosing frequency will vary by patients according to their medical profile. Take this medication only as directed. Swallow the tablet whole; do not crush, split, or chew the tablet.

What if I forget to take a dose of Actoplus Met?

If you forget to take a scheduled dose of Actoplus Met, do so as soon as you remember and are able to take it with food. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, however, skip the one missed and resume the regular dosing schedule. Do increase the number of pills taken or change the dosing regimen to make up for a missed dose.
