What Galvus (Vildagliptin) is and what it is used for?
The active substance of Galvus is vildagliptin, belongs to a group of medicines called "oral antidiabetics".
Galvus is used to treat adult patients with type 2 diabetes. It is used when diabetes cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. It helps to control the level of sugar in the blood. Your doctor or other healthcare professional will prescribe Galvus either alone or together with certain other antidiabetic medicines which you will already be taking, if these have not proved sufficiently effective to control diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes develops if the body does not make enough insulin or if the insulin that the body makes does not work as well as it should. It can also develop if the body produces too much glucagon.
Insulin is a substance which helps to lower the level of sugar in the blood, especially after meals. Glucagon is a substance which triggers the production of sugar by the liver, causing the blood sugar level to rise. The pancreas makes both of these substances.
How Galvus works?
Vildagliptin (Galvus) works by making the pancreas produce more insulin and less glucagon. This helps to control the blood sugar level. This medicine has been shown to reduce blood sugar, which may help to prevent complications from your diabetes. Even though you are now starting a medicine for your diabetes, it is important that you continue to follow the diet and / or exercise which has been recommended for you.
What you need to know before you take Galvus (Vildagliptin)?
Do not take Galvus if you are allergic to vildagliptin or any of the other ingredients of this medicine. If you think you may be allergic to vildagliptin or any of the other ingredients of Galvus, do not take this medicine and talk to your doctor, pharmacist, or other healthcare professional.

if you have moderate or severe kidney disease (you will need to take a lower dose of Galvus).
if you are taking an anti-diabetic medicine known as a sulphonylurea (your doctor may want to reduce your dose of the sulphonylurea when you take it together with Galvus in order to avoid low blood glucose, hypoglycaemia).
if you are on dialysis.
if you suffer from heart failure.

if you have or have had a disease of the pancreas.

A test to determine your liver function will be performed before the start of Galvus treatment, at three-month intervals for the first year and periodically thereafter. This is so that signs of increased liver enzymes can be detected as early as possible.
