Saxenda helps your body lower blood sugar levels only when your blood sugar is too high. It also slows down the passage of food through your stomach. Saxenda is used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes in the following situations:
• When metformin or sulphonylurea group drugs (such as glimepiride or glibenclamide) alone are not sufficient to control your blood glucose levels, although their maximum tolerable dose is used.
• When metformin in combination with sulphonylurea (such as glimepiride or glibenclamide) or metformin in combination with a glitazone (such as rosiglitazone or pioglitazone) is not sufficient to control your blood glucose levels.
