What are the common drugs for treating diabetes?
Q: What are the common less expensive drugs you can give to a diabetic patient?
A:Cheap drug does not mean good therapy. There are multiple factors involved in diabetes, all needs to be looked after. Hence, ideal treatment is expensive, but cheap in the long run. Blood sugar lowering drugs are cheap e.g. Daonil, Glynase. But other group of drugs should also be taken e.g. Metformin, Glitazone, Aspirin, lipid lowering and blood pressure drugs (Envas).
