Sukkarto SR is used together with diet and exercise to lower the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in overweight adults when diet and exercise alone for 3 to 6 months have not been enough to control blood glucose (sugar). You are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes if you have additional conditions like high blood pressure, age above 40 years, an abnormal amount of lipids (fat) in the blood or a history of diabetes during pregnancy.
The medicine is particularly effective if you are of age below 45 years, are very overweight, have high blood glucose levels after a meal or developed diabetes during pregnancy.
Insulin is a hormone that enables body tissues to take glucose from the blood and use it for energy or storage for future use. People with Type 2 diabetes do not make enough insulin in their pancreas or their body does not respond properly to the insulin it does make. It causes a build-up of glucose in the blood, which can cause several serious long-term problems, so you must continue to take your medicine, even though you may not have any obvious symptoms. Sukkarto SR makes the body more sensitive to insulin and helps return to normal the way your body uses glucose.
Sukkarto SR is associated with either stable body weight or modest weight loss.
Sukkarto SR prolonged-release tablets are specially made to release the drug slowly in your body, and therefore are different to many other types of tablets containing metformin.
Your doctor may prescribe Sukkarto SR for you to take on its own or in combination with other oral antidiabetic medicines or insulin.
Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water, do not chew.
If you have reduced kidney function, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose.
Normally, you should take the tablets once a day, with your evening meal. In some cases, your doctor may recommend that you take the tablets twice a day. Always take the tablets with food.

Sukkarto SR may cause a rare but severe side effect called lactic acidosis. If this happens, you must stop taking Sukkarto SR and contact a doctor or the nearest hospital immediately, as lactic acidosis may lead to coma.
Sukkarto SR may cause abnormal liver function tests and hepatitis, which may result in jaundice. If you realise yellowing of the eyes and/or skin, contact your doctor immediately.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember with some food unless it's nearly time for the next one. Do not take a double dose to make up a forgotten dose. Take the remaining doses at the correct time.

Nausea or vomiting
Loss of appetite
Skin rashes including redness, itching and hives
Reduced vitamin B12 levels
