Description of Glumetza

The generic name of Glumetza is metformin hydrochloride. It is basically an extended release form of metformin which is long-acting. Glumetza is used for treating Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Unlike other long-acting forms of metformin, Glumetza does not get released in the intestines, but in the stomach to decrease the side effects of diarrhea and gaseous distention. Glumetza falls under the class of biguanide medications, which are diabetes drugs. It decreases the amount of glucose produced by the liver and also curbs sugar absorption in the body from the diet. This helps the body respond well to its own insulin and keep a check on blood sugar levels. Glumetza does not cause hypoglycemia or low blood sugar as it does not increase the insulin made by the body. Buy Glumetza only under the guidance of your physician (endocrinologist) if you are suffering from Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Indications & Dosage of Glumetza

Studies have shown Glumetza to be very effective in treating Type 2 diabetes mellitus. The chances of developing diabetes-induced conditions like heart disease, diabetic nephropathy, diabetic neuropathy and diabetic retinopathy are greatly lowered due to this drug.

Glumetza comes in tablet form. The starting recommended dose for Type 2 diabetes mellitus is Glumetza 1000 mg once a day with the evening meal. Your doctor will slowly increase the Glumetza dose by 500 mg per week and if necessary, up to 2000 mg once a day. If the maximum dose of 2000 mg of Glumetza is not able to control your diabetes, your doctor will advise you to start another diabetes medication in combination with Glumetza.

If you are also on insulin, the prescribed dose of Glumetza 500 mg to be taken once daily without decreasing the normal dose of insulin. The other thing to keep in mind while taking Glumetza is that the tablet should be swallowed as a whole pill rather than crushing or chewing it. Also, if you miss a dose of Glumetza and it is time for the next regular dose, take the prescribed dose and do not make up for the missed dose. Buy Glumetza only after discussing appropriate dosing schedules with your physician.

Side Effects & Interactions of Glumetza
