Hi,

These medicines are commonly prescribed alone or in combination to control the blood sugar in patients suffering from type-2 diabetes and they work by different mechanisms.

Daonil contains glibenclamide which acts on pancreas to release insulin. Glucomet (metformin) acts on the liver and intestines to reduce blood sugar as well as to increase the glucose uptake inside the cells.

Iscept forte is a combination of glibenclamide and metformin. Jalra (vildagliptin) acts on the intestine to release certain hormones which act on pancrease to release insulin.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
