 Alloglyptin Drug Information

Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, a condition called diabetes mellitus (diabetes mellitus) develops. People with diabetes need treatment to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people have their blood sugar controlled by making changes in their diet, but to control their blood sugar in others, medications such as allogliptin are prescribed along with dietary changes. Alloglyptin allows the body to make the most of the low levels of insulin found in type 2 diabetes.

Alloglyptin works by slightly increasing the amount of insulin produced by the body, thereby controlling your blood sugar levels. It also reduces the amount of glucagon produced by the pancreas. Glucagon causes your liver to produce more sugar; Therefore, lowering glucagon levels in the body lowers blood sugar levels.

The dose and amount of allogliptin varies from person to person; Use the medicine exactly as your doctor advised

  • If you are taking allogliptin under the brand name Vipidia, the dose for most people is 25 mg (one tablet) daily. However, if your kidney problems do not go away, your doctor will change the dose of your medicine. You can take this medicine with or without food with water. Keep in mind that it is best to take the daily dose of allogliptin at a specific time of day.
  • If you have been prescribed a combination of allogliptin and metformin (Vipdomet brand), you should take the pill twice a day. Take the pill after a meal or snack as this will reduce the risk of stomach pain.

Note the expiration date of the allogliptin drug and do not take it if it has expired.

Never give alloglyphin to another person, even if you have the same symptoms.

Check for drug interactions, and if you are taking a drug that interacts with this medication, talk to your doctor about using your medications.

 

Consumption of allogliptin during pregnancy and lactation

During pregnancy and lactation, you should not use the drug arbitrarily without consulting your doctor. Medications can have devastating effects on the fetus or on yourself.

 

The effect of allogliptin on driving and working with machines

Although allogliptin is unlikely to make you dizzy or drowsy, make sure you are alert before driving or operating machinery, as you may have hypoglycemia and may not be comfortable driving.

 

Drug Interactions Alloglyptin

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter and herbal medicines) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Beta-blockers (such as metoprolol, propranolol, glaucoma eye drops such as thymolol) may prevent heart palpitations, which are commonly felt in hypoglycemia. Other symptoms of low blood sugar, such as dizziness, hunger, or sweating, are not affected by these medications.

Many medications can affect your blood sugar levels and make it difficult for you to control your blood sugar. Before you start, stop, or change any medication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how to take the medicine (the medicine that works on your blood sugar level). Check your blood sugar levels regularly and consult your doctor if you notice a sudden change in your blood sugar (high or low blood sugar). If you have serious side effects, talk to your doctor about changing your medication dose, exercise program and diet.
