Thank you for your query at
Oral hypoglycemic agents are often incapable of controlling the sugar levels alone.
A strict diet control and a long term diabetic patient would need insulin.
For how many years old patienthas he been suffering from T2DM??
Kindly reply.

Patient replied :

Sir, He has been diabetic for the last 5 yrs. What medicine to be added in addition to voglimac mf .3 to control his bl sugar?

Kindly consult an endocrinologist.
His diet needs to be modified, he needs to start walking daily and also he needs to start insulin mostly.
However, I can give my opinion once I have his HBA1c values which will give us an idea of his blood sugar control over the past 3 months with the medicine alone.
