Product Overview

Glide is a medication containing the active ingredient Glipizide SR, which is a type of oral hypoglycemic agent used to manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. Glipizide SR is a sustained-release formulation that helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release from the pancreas, thereby facilitating glucose uptake by the body’s cells. It comes in tablet form and is designed for once-daily dosing to maintain consistent glycemic control throughout the day.

Uses

Glide is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults when diet and exercise alone are not sufficient to control blood sugar levels. It helps lower blood glucose levels by increasing insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta cells, which promotes glucose utilization by the body’s tissues. It may be used as monotherapy or in combination with other antidiabetic medications to achieve optimal glycemic control.

How to Use

Glide tablets are taken orally with breakfast or the first main meal of the day. The dosage is individualized based on the patient’s response to treatment, blood glucose levels, and other factors. The tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water and should not be chewed or crushed. It is important to follow the prescribed dosing regimen and continue other lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise while taking it.

How it Works

Glipizide SR works by binding to sulfonylurea receptors on the pancreatic beta cells. This binding stimulates the release of insulin, which helps lower blood glucose levels by facilitating the uptake of glucose into cells for energy production. By promoting insulin secretion, it helps maintain optimal blood sugar levels and prevents hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended starting dose of Glide is usually 5 milligrams taken once daily with breakfast or the first main meal of the day. The dosage may be titrated gradually based on the patient’s blood glucose levels and response to treatment, up to a maximum dose of 20 milligrams per day. Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels is essential to adjust the dosage as needed and to prevent hypoglycemia.

Benefits

  1. Effective treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus.
  2. Helps lower blood glucose levels and prevent hyperglycemia.
  3. Convenient once-daily dosing regimen with sustained-release formulation.
  4. Stimulates insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells.
  5. Can be used alone or in combination with other antidiabetic medications.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Glide may include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort. These side effects are usually mild and transient, but they may occur more frequently with higher doses or when starting treatment. It is important to monitor blood glucose levels regularly and adjust the dosage as needed to minimize the risk of hypoglycemia.

Warnings

Glide should be used with caution in patients with impaired renal or hepatic function, as well as in the elderly and those with adrenal or pituitary insufficiency. It is contraindicated in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus, diabetic ketoacidosis, and severe renal or hepatic impairment. Patients should be monitored regularly for signs of hypoglycemia, particularly during dose adjustments or when using other medications that may potentiate the effects of it.
