GLICLAZIDE

Information for patients
Drug Information GLICLAZIDE is a medicine that reduces blood sugarlevels (oral antidiabetic medicine belonging to the sulphonylurea group). GLICLAZIDE is used in a certain form of diabetes (type 2 diabetes mellitus) in adults, when diet, exercise and weight loss alone do not have an adequate effect on keeping blood sugar at the correct level.
Drug Alert
Alert -if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to gliclazide or to other medicines of the same group (sulphonylureas), or to other related medicines (hypoglycaemic sulphonamides); -if you have insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1); -if you have ketone bodies and sugar in your urine (this may mean you have diabetic keto-acidosis), a diabetic pre-coma or coma; -if you have severe kidney or liver disease; -if you are taking medicines to treat fungal infections (miconazole, see Section “Taking other medicines”); -if you are breastfeeding.
Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug -if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to gliclazide or to other medicines of the same group (sulphonylureas), or to other related medicines (hypoglycaemic sulphonamides); -if you have insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1); -if you have ketone bodies and sugar in your urine (this may mean you have diabetic keto-acidosis), a diabetic pre-coma or coma; -if you have severe kidney or liver disease; -if you are taking medicines to treat fungal infections (miconazole, see Section “Taking other medicines”); -if you are breastfeeding.
Drug Special Care You should observe the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor to achieve proper blood sugar levels. This means, apart from regular tablet intake, you observe the dietary regimen, have physical exercise and, where necessary, reduce weight.During gliclazide treatment regular monitoring of your blood (and possibly urine) sugar level and also your glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is necessary. In the first few weeks of treatment the risk of having reduced blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia) may be increased. So particularly close medical monitoring is necessary. Low blood sugar (Hypoglycaemia) may occur: -if you take meals irregularly or skip meals altogether, -if you are fasting, -if you are malnourished, -if you change your diet, -if you increase your physical activity and carbohydrate intake does not match this increase, -if you drink alcohol, especially in combination with skipped meals, -if you take other medicines or natural remedies at the same time, -if you take too high doses of gliclazide, -if you suffer from particular hormone-induced disorders (functional disorders of the thyroid gland, of the pituitary gland or adrenal cortex), -if your kidney function or liver function is severely decreased. If you have low blood sugar you may have the following symptoms: headache, intense hunger, nausea, vomiting, weariness, sleep disorders, restlessness, aggressiveness, poor concentration, reduced alertness and reaction time, depression, confusion, speech or visual disorders, tremor, sensory disturbances, dizziness, and helplessness. The following signs and symptoms may also occur: sweating, clammy skin, anxiety, fast or irregular heart beat, high blood pressure, sudden strong pain in the chest that may radiate into nearby areas (angina pectoris). If blood sugar levels continue to drop you may suffer from considerable confusion (delirium), develop convulsions, lose self control, your breathing may be shallow and your heart beat slowed down, you may become unconscious. In most cases the symptoms of low blood sugar vanish very quickly when you consume some form of sugar, e.g. glucose tablets, sugar cubes, sweet juice, sweetened tea.You should therefore always carry some form of sugar with you (glucose tablets, sugar cubes). Remember that artificial sweeteners are not effective. Please contact your doctor or the nearest hospital if taking sugar does not help or if the symptoms recur. Symptoms of low blood sugar may be absent, less obvious or develop very slowly or you are not aware in time that your blood sugar level has dropped. This may happen if you are an elderly patient taking certain medicines (e.g. those acting on the central nervous system and beta blockers). If you are in stress-situations (e.g. accidents, surgical operations, fever etc.) your doctor may temporarily switch you to insulin therapy. Symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) may occur when gliclazide has not yet sufficiently reduced the blood sugar, when you have not complied with the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor or in special stress situations ). These may include thirst, frequent urination, dry mouth, dry itchy skin, skininfections and reduced performance. If these symptoms occur, you must contact your doctor or pharmacist. If you have a family history of or know you have the hereditary condition glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (abnormality of red blood cells), lowering of the haemoglobin level and breakdown of red blood cells (haemolytic anaemia) can occur. Contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product. GLICLAZIDE is not recommended for use in children due to a lack of data
Drug Drug Interactions Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicinesobtained without a prescription, as they may interact with your GLICLAZIDE.The blood sugar lowering effect of gliclazide may be strengthened and signs of low blood sugar levels may occur then one of the following medicines is taken: -other medicines used to treat high blood sugar (oral antidiabetics or insulin), -antibiotics (e.g. sulphonamides), -medicines to treat high blood pressure or heart failure (beta blockers, ACE-inhibitors such as captopril, or enalapril), -medicines to treat fungal infections (miconazole, fluconazole), -medicines to treat ulcers in the stomach or duodenum (H2receptor antagonists), -medicines to treat depression (monoamine oxidase inhibitors), -painkiller or antirheumatics (phenylbutazone, ibuprofen), -medicines containing alcohol. The blood glucose lowering effect of gliclazide may be weakenes and raised blood sugar levels may occur when one of the following medicines is taken: -medicines to treat disorders of the central nervous system (chlorpromazine), -medicines reducing inflammation (corticosteroids), -medicines to treat asthma or used during labour (intravenous salbutamol, ritodrine and terbutaline), -medicines to treat breast disorders, heavy menstrual bleeding and endometriosis (danazol).

How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info no data available
Drug quanitty Always take GLICLAZIDE exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The dose is determined by the doctor, depending on your blood and possibly urine sugar levels. Change in external factors (e.g. weight reduction, change in life style, stress) or improvements in the blood sugar control may require changed gliclazide doses. The usual dose is one to four tablets (maximun 120 mg) in a single intake at breakfast time. This depends on the response to treatment.If a combination therapy of GLICLAZIDE with metformin, an alpha glucosidase inhibitor or insulin is initiated your doctor will determine the proper dose of each medicine individually for you. Please talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have the impression that GLICLAZIDE is acting too strongly or not strongly enough.
Drug Dose Swallow your tablets whole. Do not chew them.Take your tablet(s) with a glass of water at breakfast time (and preferably at the same time each day). You must always eat a meal after taking
Excess Drug Consumption If you take too many tablets, contact your doctor or the nearest hospital Accident & Emergency department immediately. The signs of overdose are those of low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia)described in Section 2. The symptoms can be helped by taking sugar (4 to 6 lumps) or sugary drinks straight away, followed by a substantial snack or meal. If the patient is unconscious immediately inform a doctor and call the emergency services. The same should be done if somebody, e.g. a child, has taken the product unintentionally. Unconscious patients must not be given food or drink. It should be ensured that there is always a pre-informed person that can call a doctor in case of emergency.
Forgot Drug Consumption It is important to take your medicine every day as regular treatment works better. However, if you forget to take a dose of GLICLAZIDE , take the next dose at the usual time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
Stop Drug Consumption As the treatment for diabetes is usually life long, you should discuss with your doctor before stopping this medicinal product. Stopping could cause high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia).
Possible Side Effects
General Information Like all medicines GLICLAZIDE 30 mg can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.The most commonly observed side effect is low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia). If left untreated these symptoms could progress to drowsiness, loss of consciousness or possibly coma. If an episode of low blood sugar is severe or prolonged, even if it is temporarily controlled by eating sugar, you should seek immediate medical attention. Blood disorders: Decrease in the number of cells in the blood has been reported (e.g. platelets, red and white blood cells). This may cause: -Paleness -Prolonged bleeding -Bruising -Sore throat -Fever These symptoms usually vanish when the treatment is discontinued. Liver disorders There have been isolated reports of abnormal liver function, which can cause yellow skin and eyes. If you get this, see your doctor immediately. The symptoms generally disappear if the medicine is stopped. Your doctor will decide whether to stop your treatment. Skin disorders Skin reactions have been reported such as: -Rash -Redness -Itching -Hives Severe reactions may also appear. Digestive disorders -Stomach pain or discomfort -Feeling or being sick -Indigestion -Diarrhoea -Constipation These effects are reduced when Gliclazide is taken with a meal as recommended, “HOW TO TAKE”. Eye disorders Your vision may be affected for a short time especially at the start of treatment. This effect is due to changes in blood sugar levels. With sulphonylureas, cases of severe changes in the number of blood cells and allergic inflammation of the wall of blood vessels have been described. Symptoms of liver impairment (e.g. jaundice) have been observed which in most cases disappeared after withdrawal of the sulphonylureas, but may lead to life- threatening liver failure in isolated cases. If any of the side effects gets serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist
