More information about Gliclazide

What is Gliclazide?

Gliclazide is a medication prescribed to lower blood sugar levels and treat diabetes mellitus. It is only prescribed for type-2 diabetes, where regular insulin injections are not needed.

Before you use this treatment, a doctor may advise you to try to control your diabetes through diet and lifestyle changes. You should maintain these changes alongside your use of Gliclazide.

For safety reasons, you must have received a prior diagnosis of type-2 diabetes before ordering this medication online.

Gliclazide is also known by a number of brands including Bilxona, Dacadis and Diamicron.

How does Gliclazide work?

There are three forms of diabetes; type-1, type-2 and gestational (GDM). Type-1 commonly occurs in children and teenagers, and it is where your body cannot produce insulin. As a result, you require insulin injections. Type-2 is more common in adults, and it is where your body does not produce enough insulin and cannot use it efficiently. Gestational (GDM) is generally temporary and occurs in pregnant women.

Insulin is an essential hormone, produced by the pancreas, which is needed for your cells to absorb blood sugar (or glucose). If your cells cannot complete this process, high blood sugar can present many unpleasant symptoms and life-threatening complications.

Gliclazide activates beta cells in your pancreas, increasing their production of insulin. By increasing your insulin production, your cells can reduce blood sugar levels. In turn, you will suffer less from the symptoms of diabetes.

How do I take Gliclazide?

Remember - with every medication you take, follow the advice of the prescribing doctor.

Instructions:

  • you should take tablets with a glass of water
  • tablets should be taken before meals
  • do not exceed the recommended dose
  • you can break tablets to make them easier to swallow
  • do not chew tablets

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, do not take a double dose. Instead, take your next tablet as normal.

What types of tablets are available?

There are two versions your doctor may prescribe - immediate-release and modified-release. Each version works in a slightly different way.

An immediate-release tablet will introduce the active ingredient, gliclazide, into your bloodstream immediately. You may need to take two tablets daily. You should start with a 40-80mg tablet every morning with breakfast. The doctor may increase this to 160mg, depending on how you react. Any more than this should be taken as a separate dose. Do not exceed 320 mg daily.

In comparison, the modified-release version releases gliclazide gradually, meaning only one tablet is needed. The tablet should be taken in the morning, before breakfast. You will start with 30mg and should visit your doctor for a review every four weeks. Do not exceed 120mg of the modified-release tablets per day.

What are the possible side effects of Gliclazide?

All medications pose a risk of side effects. The most common reactions associated with Gliclazide are:

  • abdominal pain
  • diarrhoea
  • hypoglycaemia*
  • nausea

*This is where your blood sugar levels drop too low. It is recommended to snack on fruit or drink fruit juices if this occurs.

For a full list of side effects, including less commonly and rarely reported reactions, please consult the patient information leaflet (PIL) - this will be included with your order.

If you experience any side effects, make sure to report them to your doctor.

You should also know the symptoms of an allergic reaction - rashes, swelling of the face and throat and difficulty breathing.

Who can use it?

To be prescribed a course of Gliclazide, you must have been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.

Other than this, there are a number of conditions and situations that may make this treatment ineffective or dangerous. For example, if you:

  • have liver or kidney conditions
  • are allergic to any of the ingredients
  • have acute porphyrias
  • have not been prescribed it by your doctor
  • are pregnant or breastfeeding

You should contact your doctor if any of the above apply.

What precautions should I take?

As mentioned above, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not use this medication. Theoretically, the ingredients can affect your child and induce hypoglycemia.

You should be aware of the symptoms of hypoglycemia - trembling, weakness, vision problems, etc. If you experience these, do not drive until you have dealt with the hypoglycemia and recovered.
