Glucotrol prescription FAQs
How does Glucotrol (Glipizide) work?
Insulin is released from your pancreas following a meal to stimulate the absorption of glucose from your food, so it can be used by your tissues and organs. However, in those with diabetes, insulin is not released properly. This can lead to high blood sugar levels, which can pose a risk to your health.
Glipizide works to lower your blood sugar by stimulating the pancreas before, during, and after your meal. By doing so, your body produces insulin and uses it efficiently to break down your food. This medication only works to boost your current natural production of insulin, and therefore should not be used to treat type 1 diabetes.
What is the initial starting dosage of Glucotrol (Glipizide)?
The initial starting dose for adults is 2.5 mg to 5 mg orally, once a day, 30 minutes before breakfast. If the response to a single dose is not satisfactory, the dosage may be increased from 2.5 mg to 5 mg, to no more than 40 mg once daily. You may find it best to divide the dose to 15 mg twice daily.
You must always follow your doctor's specific instructions for your individualized treatment plans. Several health factors may vary your dosage plan, and you should contact your doctor before changing your dose.
What are the benefits of Glucotrol (Glipizide)?
Regaining control over your blood sugar levels, with the help of glipizide, is key to helping you live a healthy, full life.
