About GLEZ 5MG TABLET

GLEZ 5MG TABLET belongs to the group of antidiabetic medicines called 'sulfonylureas' used to treat type-2 diabetes mellitus. GLEZ 5MG TABLET is prescribed for the condition of type 2 diabetes when diet and exercise alone cannot control their blood sugar levels. Type-2 diabetes mellitus is also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Diabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are above normal. Insulin is the hormone that controls sugar levels in your blood. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce sufficient insulin or cannot perform its function in the body (insulin resistance). Middle-aged or older individuals are most likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes.
 
GLEZ 5MG TABLET contains 'Glipizide' which works by increasing insulin production by stimulating insulin secretion from the beta cells of the pancreas, thereby reduces high blood glucose (sugar) levels. GLEZ 5MG TABLET does not treat type 1 diabetes.
 
Take GLEZ 5MG TABLET 30 minutes before food as taking GLEZ 5MG TABLET with food may delay its absorption. Do not break, chew, or crush the tablet; swallow it as a whole with a glass of water. Take GLEZ 5MG TABLET at the same time every day. GLEZ 5MG TABLET should not be taken unless prescribed by a doctor. You are advised to take GLEZ 5MG TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as hypoglycemia (low blood glucose levels), nausea, diarrhea, and stomach pain. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are recommended to consult your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
 
GLEZ 5MG TABLET is not effective in people with type 1 diabetes or for treating serious hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels). To treat your condition, effectually continue taking GLEZ 5MG TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it. Please do not skip any doses or stop taking GLEZ 5MG TABLET suddenly without consulting your doctor as it may lead to increased blood glucose levels. Avoid taking GLEZ 5MG TABLET if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. GLEZ 5MG TABLET should not be given to children. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking GLEZ 5MG TABLET as it might increase side-effects. GLEZ 5MG TABLET may cause dizziness and drowsiness, so drive only if you are alert.
