All the medicines you mentioned are for diabetes. There is no course of days or time limit for the medicines. They are to be continued till you get your sugars tested again and meet with your doctor.
Hello, thanks for the query. The tablet mentioned is to be taken for treating diabetes for quite a long time. Because diabetes is going to go away after 16 days. Since no other information is guven like fasting, pp glucose & hba1c%, no further comments can be made. If you have developed diabetes then treatment has to be continued for life time. If you have any questions please come back with all the necessary details. Thanks.
