This combination of medication is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.

Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems.

Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. This product contains 2 medications: alogliptin and metformin.

Alogliptin works by increasing levels of natural substances called incretins. Incretins help to control blood sugar by increasing insulin release, especially after a meal. They decrease the amount of sugar your liver makes. Metformin works by helping to restore your body’s proper response to the insulin you naturally produce.

Use and Dosage

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using alogliptin/metformin and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day with meals. Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Do not break/cut the tablet before taking it. If you have trouble swallowing the tablet whole, tell your doctor.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). To reduce your risk of side effects (such as upset stomach), your doctor may direct you to start this medication at a low dose and gradually increase your dose. Take this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Carefully follow your diabetes management plan, including medications, diet, and exercise.

Check your blood sugar regularly as directed by your doctor. Keep track of the results and share them with your doctor. Tell your doctor if your blood sugar measurements are often too high or too low. Your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet.

Side Effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction (hives, difficulty breathing, and swelling in your face or throat) or a severe skin reaction (fever, sore throat, burning eyes, skin pain, red or purple skin rash with blistering and peeling).

Stop taking Kazano and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of pancreatitis – severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, or fast heartbeats.

Some people using metformin develop lactic acidosis, which can be fatal. Get emergency medical help if you have even mild symptoms such as:

  • Unusual muscle pain
  • Feeling cold
  • Trouble breathing
  • Feeling dizzy, light-headed, tired, or very weak
  • Stomach pain or vomiting
  • Slow or irregular heart rate

Call your doctor at once if you have:

  • Severe or ongoing pain in your joints
  • Pain or burning when you urinate
  • Liver problems – nausea, upper stomach pain, tiredness, loss of appetite, dark urine, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • Symptoms of heart failure – shortness of breath (even while lying down), swelling in your legs or feet, or rapid weight gain

Common Kazano side effects may include:

  • Diarrhea or upset stomach
  • Increased blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, or pounding in your neck or ears)
  • Back pain or headache
  • Cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sinus pain, or sore throat

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur.


  • Before taking this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to alogliptin or metformin; or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
  • Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: breathing problems (such as asthma, obstructive lung disease), kidney disease, liver problems, disease of the pancreas (pancreatitis), stones in your gallbladder (gallstones), vitamin B12 deficiency.
  • You may experience blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness due to extremely low or high blood sugar. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness or clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely.
  • Limit alcohol while using this medication because it can increase your risk of lactic acidosis and developing low blood sugar.
  • Before having surgery or any X-ray/scanning procedure using iodinated contrast, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). You may need to stop this medication for a short time for the surgery/procedure. Ask your doctor or dentist for instructions before your surgery/procedure.
  • High fever, “water pills”/diuretics (such as hydrochlorothiazide), too much sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting may cause dehydration and increase your risk of lactic acidosis. Stop taking this medication and tell your doctor right away if you have prolonged diarrhea or vomiting. Be sure to drink enough fluids to prevent dehydration unless your doctor directs you otherwise.
  • It may be harder to control your blood sugar when your body is stressed (such as due to fever, infection, injury, or surgery). Consult your doctor because this may require a change in your treatment plan, medications, or blood sugar testing.
  • Older adults may be at greater risk for side effects such as low blood sugar or lactic acidosis.
  • This medication can cause changes in a woman’s menstrual cycle (promote ovulation) and increase the chance of pregnancy. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about using reliable birth control while taking this medication.
  • During pregnancy, this medication should be used only when needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • Pregnancy may cause or worsen diabetes. Discuss a plan with your doctor for managing your blood sugar while pregnant. Your doctor may change your diabetes treatment during your pregnancy (such as diet and medications including insulin).
  • Metformin passes into breast milk in small amounts. It is unknown if alogliptin passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
