DEAR SIR/MADAM

TRIMETADAY 1 MG IS A COMBINATION OF GLIMEPERIDE 1 MG AND PIOGLITAZONE 15 MG.
VOGO 0.3 MG CONTAINS VOGLIBOSE 0.3 MG.

DIBIZIDE M IS A COMBINATION OF GLIPIZIDE 5 MG AND METFORMIN 500 MG.

AS YOU ARE NEARING MENOPAUSE I ADVICE YOU TO REDUCE THE DOSAGE OF PIOGLITAZONE FROM 15 MG TO 7.5 MG.

K VOG 0.3 MG IS CHEAPER WHEN COMPARED TO VOGO 0.3 MG. I RECOMMEND YOU TO USE THIS TABLET ONLY IF YOU HAVE HIGH POST PRANIDIAL SUGAR VALUES.

START VITAMIN D3 60,000 IU EVERY WEEK FOR 6 WEEKS.

START VITAMIN B12 TABLETS ALONG WITH ALPHA LIPOIC ACIDS.
