Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Yes, glucophase and diamicron
can be used together. Glucophase is metformin
which is one of the most commonly used medications for diabetes
, diamicron is a sulphonyurea.
These two type of medications are often used together.
The maximum dose of metformin (glucophase) is 3 g a day, so this can also be increased to optimise control.
The addition of the diamicron to an increased dose of metformin should result in improved readings.
Diabetes progresses, so persons would move from control with lifestyle measures, to one medication to requiring more than one for optimal control.
I hope this helps
