How Glycozide M 60mg/500mg Tablet works:
Take Gliclazide before meals or exactly as instructed by your doctor. There are evidences stating that Gliclazide works best at controlling post meal high blood sugar levels when taken 30 minutes before breakfast. So, if you are supposed to take it once daily, take it in the morning before breakfast with a glass of water.
Q. Is Gliclazide the same as metformin?
No, Gliclazide is not the same as metformin. Although, both these oral medicines are used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, the way they work to reduce the sugar levels are different. While Gliclazide acts by increasing the secretion of insulin by the pancreas, metformin acts by improving the functioning and effectiveness of the insulin already available in the body.
Q. Can you take metformin and Gliclazide at the same time?
Yes, Gliclazide and metformin can be taken at the same time but only if prescribed by the doctor. Your doctor may have prescribed taking the two together to control your uncontrolled sugar levels. However, taking the two together may cause low blood sugar which may also occur if you delay or miss a meal, exercise more than usual or take it with insulin. Follow the instructions given by your doctor strictly to avoid such complications.
Q. Is Gliclazide bad for kidneys?
No, Gliclazide is not harmful if your kidney function is normal. Any previous case of kidney problem should be informed to the doctor, so that the use of Gliclazide can be assessed. This is done in order to analyze whether Gliclazide can be given or not because it is principally excreted by the kidney. If you have kidney problems you will be started at lower dose.
