Inosita Tablet Uses

Inosita is an anti-diabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, sometimes along with other anti-diabetic medications. It helps lower blood glucose levels and improves glycemic control. Inosita is composed of sitagliptin.

Sitagliptin belongs to the class of drugs known as dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors. It helps lower blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes patients by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the body.
