Effective Management of Type 2 Diabetes


DOPATAB M250, containing 250mg of metformin, is an essential medication for the management of type 2 diabetes. Metformin helps control blood sugar levels by improving the way your body handles insulin, often recommended as the first line of treatment for diabetes. It is suitable for use alone or in combination with other medications to achieve better glucose control.

Key Ingredient

  • Metformin (250mg): A biguanide class medication that reduces glucose production in the liver, enhances insulin sensitivity, and improves glucose uptake by muscle cells.

Health Benefits

  • Controls Blood Sugar Levels: Helps maintain proper blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of diabetes complications such as nerve damage, kidney failure, and heart disease.
  • Long-Term Diabetes Management: Effective in managing type 2 diabetes over the long term, helping to prevent associated health problems.
  • Supports Weight Management: Metformin may aid in weight management, a common concern for type 2 diabetes patients.


  • Extended Release Formula: DOPATAB M250 is designed for extended release, allowing for gradual absorption and extended blood sugar control throughout the day.
  • Versatile Treatment Option: Can be used as a standalone treatment or combined with other diabetes medications depending on individual patient needs.

How to Use

  • Dosage: Typically, the starting dose is one tablet of DOPATAB M250 taken once daily with meals to reduce gastrointestinal side effects. Dosage may be adjusted based on the patient's blood glucose response, as directed by a healthcare provider.
  • Administration: Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Do not crush or chew.


  • Monitor Blood Sugar Regularly: It’s important to monitor your blood sugar regularly to ensure the medication is effectively controlling it.
  • Lactic Acidosis Warning: Although rare, metformin can cause lactic acidosis, a serious condition. Be alert for symptoms like muscle pain, difficulty breathing, stomach pain, dizziness, and feeling cold.
  • Kidney Function: Kidney function should be assessed before starting treatment and periodically thereafter, as metformin is contraindicated in patients with significant renal impairment.

Available Size

  • Packaging: Comes in packs of 30 tablets, providing a month's supply for daily management.
