Description of Glucotrol

Glucotrol is a diabetes medication with the generic name Glipizide. It belongs to a group of medicines known as Sulfonylureas. Glucotrol is available in the form of a tablet indicated for oral use. It is available in two strengths, Glucotrol 5mg and 10mg. The drug is a prescription medication; you need to consult your doctor before you buy Glucotrol online.

Indications & Dosage of Glucotrol

Glucotrol is used to control blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin diabetes). The drug is prescribed along with dietary recommendations and exercise regime. Glipizide, the active ingredient in the medication, stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, which helps manage blood sugar levels.

Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. The dosage of Glucotrol depends on your medical condition and response to treatment. You need to take Glucotrol 30 minutes prior eating a meal. If your doctor has recommended only one daily dose of Glucotrol, take it 30 minutes prior breakfast.

Take the medication at the same time every day to get maximum benefit from Glucotrol treatment. Do not take the medication in larger amounts than recommended by your doctor as it may cause low blood sugar levels.
