What is saxagliptin?

Onglyza 2.5 mg Tab
Drug Name: SAXAGLIPTIN - ORAL
Other Brand Names: Onglyza
Uses: Saxagliptin is used either alone or with other medications, and with a proper diet and exercise program, to control high blood sugar. It is used in people with type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. This drug works by increasing levels of natural substances called incretins. Incretins help to control blood sugar by increasing insulin release, especially after a meal. They also decrease the amount of sugar your liver makes. This medication should not be used to treat people with type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes).
