Duetact is a combination of two drugs, glimepiride and pioglitazone. It is used alongside a proper diet and an exercise regimen to keep high blood sugar in check. Glimepiride belongs to the sulfonylureas class of drugs and works by inducing the release of the body's natural insulin. Pioglitazone, on the other hand, belongs to a class of drugs referred to as thiazolidinediones and works by helping the body respond to insulin properly, thereby lowering blood sugar.
