Metformin – Is an oral hypoglycemic (Glucophage® ) for the monotherapy of diabetes mellitus of type II (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus or impaired glucose tolerance). Metformin also provides positive treatment success in combination with sulfonylurea drugs or insulin when required. Metformin improves insulin resistancy, reduces blood sugar production in the liver and improves the glucose utilization in tissue. In comparison with other antidiabetics Metformin therapy does not result in hypoglycaemic states. In addition, Metformin produces weight loss in obese diabetics.

Bisoprolol- (Concore®) – belongs to the group of beta receptor blockers which are used for the treatment of high blood pressure and coronary heart diseases.
