Description of Avandia

Avandia is an oral diabetes medicine primarily used for controlling blood sugar levels in the body. It is generally used by Type 2 diabetes patients. Avandia has been shown to increase the chances of heart attacks and strokes. The generic name of Avandia is rosiglitazone.

Indications & Dosage of Avandia

Only Type 2 diabetes patients who have problems with insulin injections can buy Avandia. It should not be used by patients suffering from Type 1 diabetes. The drug should never be taken with insulin.

Avandia is available in three strengths: Avandia 2mg, Avandia 4mg and Avandia 8mg. The drug should be taken twice a day, preferably in the morning and in the evening. It can be taken separately or with food. Following the doctor’s prescription is vital in order to get the best out of the medicine. Blood sugar levels need to be monitored regularly when taking diabetes medications. Hypoglycemia may occur if blood sugar levels dip too low. Carrying juices or other sources of glucose is highly recommended. Alcoholic beverages and all other products that may lower blood sugar should be avoided. Avandia should be stored at room temperature and away from excess moisture and heat.

Side Effects & Interactions of Avandia

Avandia users may experience certain side effects. Some side effects gradually go away and occur mainly because of the changes in body function. These side effects don’t need medical attention. Some of these are as follows:

  • Stuffy and runny nose;
  • Coughing and sneezing;
  • Sore throat;
  • Back pain and ache;
  • Headaches

Apart from the aforementioned side effects, there are certain other side effects that patients may experience. These are serious in nature and often require immediate medical attention. Some of these are as follows:

  • Breathing difficulties;
  • Weight problems, swelling;
  • Nausea;
  • Change in urine color and pattern;
  • Loss of appetite;
  • Stomach pain and ache;
  • Vision difficulties;
  • Severe weakness;
  • Bruising and bleeding

People who buy Avandia should also be aware of the interactions of this medication with other drugs. Drug interactions generally occur when multiple substances with conflicting characteristics are administered. Interactions can greatly alter the effectiveness of substances and also increase side effects. Substances like diuretics, contraceptives, steroids, thyroid medicines, and seizure pills, which increase blood sugar levels, may cause hyperglycemia if taken along with Avandia. Substances like NSAIDs, aspirin and other diabetes drugs may cause hypoglycemia if taken with Avandia. It is best to consult a doctor before taking Avandia along with any other prescription or non-prescription drug.

Warnings & Precautions of Avandia

Type 1 diabetes patients should not buy Avandia. People who have experienced heart, liver and vision problems in the past due to diabetes should check with their doctor before using Avandia, because it greatly increases the chances of strokes and heart attacks. It is best to avoid Avandia during pregnancy, as it might cause harm to the unborn baby.
