Both drugs work differently and together enhance blood sugar control in type ll diabetics.

Metformin works by decreasing glucose production in the liver, decreasing glucose absorption form the intestines and by increasing insulin sensitivity to insulin which results in an increases in glucose uptake.

Miglitol works by slowing down the enzyme that turns carbohydrates into glucose. This decreases blood sugar levels following a meal.
