Diatrol Tablet 2mg 20’s
Diatrol Tablet 2mg 20’s is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. It may also be used with other diabetes medications. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Glimepiride belongs to the class of drugs known as sulfonylureas. It lowers blood sugar by causing the release of your body’s natural insulin.
Diatrol Tablet 2mg 20’s common side effects include headache, nausea, and dizziness. Serious side effects may include low blood sugar. Use during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended. It works mainly by increasing the amount of insulin released from the pancreas.
Glimepiride is indicated to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Its mode of action is to increase insulin secretion by the pancreas. However it requires adequate insulin synthesis as prerequisite to treat appropriately. It is not used for type 1 diabetes because in type 1 diabetes the pancreas is not able to produce insulin.
Like all glimepiride acts as an insulin secretagogue. It lowers blood sugar by stimulating the release of insulin by pancreatic beta cells and by inducing increased activity of intracellular insulin receptors. Its use is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to glimepiride or other sulfonylureas. Glimepiride should be taken once a day. Make sure you take it with your first meal of the day.
Diatrol Tablet 2mg 20’s medication is used for managing non-insulin dependent diabetes. This medicine should be taken with food.
