What is Competact?

Competact (pioglitazone) is an oral prescription treatment that is generally prescribed to people with Type 2 diabetes, particularly people who are overweight. Individuals with blood sugar that cannot be controlled by the maximum tolerated dosage of Metformin alone can also buy this prescription treatment to effectively manage Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is the result of a deficiency in insulin, which is the main hormone responsible for the control of sugar in the blood. This leads to problems controlling blood sugar levels. As an effective diabetes medication, Competact helps manage Type 2 diabetes using its two active ingredients, which work to help keep blood sugar levels under control.

Competact is taken orally once in the morning and once in the evening in the form of a 15mg / 850mg tablet. This is the recommended dosage for Competact and is available to buy online at euroClinix today.

How does it work?

The two active ingredients Metformin hydrochloride and pioglitazone hydrochloride both work to help treat Type 2 diabetes. Metformin is a biguanide, helping the body control its sugar levels. It does this by reducing the amount of sugar (glucose) absorbed from food by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver. Pioglitazone hydrochloride creates the liver, fat and muscle cells to become more sensitive to insulin. This reduces the production of glucose produced by the liver, while maintaining the production of insulin.

How to take Competact tablets?

One 15mg / 850mg Competact (pioglitazone) tablet should be taken twice daily, preferably once in the morning and once in the evening, with or without food. It is recommended however, to take this medication with a glass of water. It is important to take this medication exactly as it has been prescribed to you.

If you are switching from buying Metformin to buying Competact for the treatment of your Type 2 diabetes, it is recommended that you add pioglitazone (the active ingredient) to your system slowly so that you can reach the 15mg / 850mg dosage safely.

While taking this medication it is important that you check your blood sugar levels regularly with your doctor.

Precautions when taking Competact?

Competact is only suitable for people who have Type 2 diabetes and whose blood sugar cannot be controlled by Metformin alone. You should not Competact tablets if you:

  • are allergic to any of the ingredients found in this medication
  • are diabetic ketoacidosis
  • have a history of heart failure or bladder cancer
  • have severe circulatory problems
  • have breathing difficulties
  • have liver disease, blood in your urine or kidney problems

You will also not be prescribed this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have a dependency on alcohol then it is advised not to use this medication either.

Are there any side effects?

Like all medications, Competact does carry a small risk of side effects, though not everyone taking this medication will experience them. Some of these side effects may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting/diarrhoea
  • Loss of appetite

These are not common and usually subside as the body becomes accustomed to the treatment. Severe side effects include inflammation of the sinuses, sleeping difficulties and gas, though these are very rare. If you experience anything particularly bothersome, seek medical help as soon as possible.

The active ingredients - pioglitazone hydrochloride

Competact tablets contain two active ingredients, metformin hydrochloride and pioglitazone hydrochloride. These are both medicines used to help control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

People with diabetes mellitus have a deficiency or absence of a hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin. Insulin is the main hormone responsible for the control of sugar in the blood. In type 2 diabetes the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin and the cells of the body are resistant to the low levels of insulin circulating in the blood. Insulin would normally make the cells remove sugar from the blood; hence in type 2 diabetes blood sugar levels can rise too high.
