Sitagliptin belongs to a class of medicines called DPP-4 inhibitors and metformin belongs to biguanides. Together they control blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, a condition in which the body does not make enough insulin, and the insulin that the body produces does not work as well as it should.
