What You Should Know
Glucozide appears to be a prescription formula used to treat patients with type II diabetes. It will work with a healthy diet to lower the blood sugar levels. Information for this review comes from the Flexyx website, but it seems many different pharmaceutical companies make a form of this medication.
A list of ingredients cannot be found as this is a prescription drug.
Glucozide is an “oral hypoglycemic agent which is rapidly absorbed and completely metabolized.” as according to the Flexyx website. It works by stimulating the release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells. It is suggested that patients stay on this medication for at least six months as some patients cannot respond immediately to the medication. Take Glucozide 30 minutes before having a breakfast meal, and do not crush, break or chew the tablets. Some people may notice a tablet casing in their stool, but this is normal as this is just leftover from the medication and is nothing to be alarmed about.
Stay away from alcohol and aspirin while on this medication as this can cause unwanted and potentially dangerous side effects. Some of these side effects include tingling and numbness in the extremities, fatigue, confusion, yellowing of the eyes and skin, and excessive sweating. These are all very serious and require immediate medical attention. The generic name for this drug is Glipizide. Tell your doctor about your condition, along with all the other medicines you are taking so as to avoid potentially dangerous interactions. Your doctor should be the only one to decide if you need this medication.
- Helps to lower and stabilize the blood sugar for diabetics.
- Should not be taken by anyone who has not seen a doctor and been told to take this medicine.
- Should not be taken by those who are pregnant or nursing.
If you are a diabetic who needs help controlling your blood sugar and diet changes have not done enough for you, you may want to speak to your doctor about Glucozide. If you are a person looking for a weight loss supplement, you should look for something else. This product may induce weight loss as a side effect because a key to weight loss is the stabilization of blood sugar levels, but it is not meant for those who are not diabetic. Follow dosing directions exactly as prescribed by your physician and report any sudden changes or side effects you notice immediately.
