Description of Glyset

Glyset is an oral diabetes medication with the generic name Miglitol. It belongs to a group of medicines known as alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. Glyset is available in the form of a tablet. It is supplied in three strengths such as Glyset 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg. The drug is a prescription medication, so you need to consult your doctor before you buy Glyset online.

Indications & Dosage of Glyset

Glyset is indicated to treat high blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. The drug may be prescribed alone, along with insulin or other diabetes pills. However, the drug should not be used with similar drugs such as Acarbose.

Miglitol, the active ingredient in Glyset, blocks the enzymes that are needed to digest carbohydrates, thus preventing digestion of carbohydrates in the food. This action of the drug slows down the absorption of carbohydrates from the diet, which prevents rising of sugar levels after a meal.

Your doctor will decide the dose of Glyset and give you specific instructions regarding how to take it. The dosage of Glyset depends on factors such as your medical condition and response to the treatment.

The recommended dose should be taken with first bite of the meal. The starting dose for type 2 diabetes adult patients is one Glyset 25mg tablet, three times daily. After 4-8 weeks, the dosage may be increased to one Glyset 50mg tablet, three times daily. After additional 12 weeks period, your doctor may consider increasing the dosage to one Glyset 100mg tablet, three times daily if necessary.
