What is Kombiglyze XR?
Kombiglyze XR is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals.
Kombiglyze XR is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitor and biguanide combination product used with diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus when treatment with both saxagliptin and metformin is appropriate.
Kombiglyze is not for the treatment of type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis and has not been studied in patients with a history of pancreatitis.
The risk of lactic acidosis can occur due to metformin accumulation. The risk increases with conditions such as sepsis, dehydration, excess alcohol intake, hepatic impairment, renal impairment, and acute congestive heart failure.

Kombiglyze XR is available in tablet form, in the following doses:
- 5 mg saxagliptin/500 mg metformin HCl extended-release
- 5 mg saxagliptin/1000 mg metformin HCl extended-release
- 2.5 mg saxagliptin/1000 mg metformin HCl extended-release
Take once daily with the evening meal. The starting dose is based on your current regimen then adjusted based on effectiveness and tolerability. Do not exceed a daily dose of 5 mg saxagliptin/2000 mg metformin HCl extended-release. Swallow the tablets whole. Never crush, cut, or chew. Limit the saxagliptin dose to 2.5 mg daily if you are also taking strong cytochrome P450 3A4/5 inhibitors such as ketoconazole.
Please see the full prescribing information, and medication guide and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
