Pharmacological information of saxagliptin

Medication Information: Insulin is a hormone that is made naturally in the body. This hormone helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not produce enough insulin or does not use the insulin it produces properly, it can lead to diabetes. People with diabetes need treatment to control their blood sugar levels.This is because proper control of blood sugar levels prevents diabetes-related diseases. Some people can control their blood sugar levels by following a diet, but others need medication in addition to diet control. Saxagliptin increases insulin levels in the body. It also lowers blood glucagon levels. Glucagon increases blood sugar levels by affecting the liver. Blood glucose levels also drop as glucagon production decreases.

Drug interaction of saxagliptin

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 timolol) may prevent heart palpitations, which are commonly seen 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.
