Glipizide 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. Glipizide is one of the medications prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes.

People with diabetes need treatment to control their blood glucose levels; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people can control their blood sugar by making changes to their diet, but for others, medications are prescribed in addition to changing their diet.

Glipizide increases the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas; It is given alone or in combination with anti-diabetic drugs or insulin.

  • Take glipizide tablets regularly and at a set time (an hour and a half before meals) with some water.
  • If you forget to take your daily dose at the right time but soon forget, take the medicine; But if you remember when the next dose is near the hour, do not take the missed dose. You should not take two doses of the medicine together because of the missed dose.

The effect of Glipizide on driving

Glipizide can cause low blood sugar and symptoms such as dizziness and weakness. Avoid driving until these symptoms go away.

 

Drug Interaction Glipizide

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 during 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 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.

Check the labels on all your medicines (such as cough and cold medicines) because some of them contain substances that cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist how to use them so that you can use them safely.
