INTRODUCTION

CORSITA 100 contains Sitagliptin which belongs to the group of medicines called Anti-diabetic drugs. CORSITA 100 is used in adults to treat type 2 diabetes alone or along with other anti-diabetic medicines, diet, and exercise. Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which your body does not make enough insulin (a hormone that helps control your blood sugar levels) or the insulin that is produced does not work well. When this happens, glucose levels rise in the blood and can lead to serious medical problems like heart, or kidney disease and blindness. It can show symptoms like increased thirst, urination and hunger, blurry vision, numbness in hands or feet, or tiredness.

Sitagliptin works by slowing down the inactivation of gut hormones released after eating the meals. This kind of action increases the secretion of insulin and decrease glucagon release (hormone which raises blood glucose level), resulting in an overall increase in blood glucose control. This medicine can be used alone or in combination with certain other medicines that lower blood sugar, along with food and exercise plan for diabetes.

Before taking CORSITA 100, inform your doctor if you have any disease of the pancreas, gallstones, alcohol dependence, very high levels of fat in your blood, type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis, or any kidney or heart problems. CORSITA 100 is not recommended for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, therefore consult your doctor before taking it. CORSITA 100 is not recommended for use in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. The most common side effects of taking CORSITA 100 are low blood sugar, headache, upper respiratory infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, osteoarthritis, and arm or leg pain. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms worsen.
