Product Description:

General information
Glucotrol is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug of the sulfonylurea class that helps control blood sugar levels. The active ingredient is glipizide. This medication helps your pancreas produce insulin. Glucotrol is used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes.
Directions
Take Glucotrol exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended starting dose is 5 mg. Geriatric patients or those with liver disease may be started on 2.5 mg. The maximum recommended total daily dose is 40 mg. Take Glucotrol 30 minutes before a meal. If you take Glucotrol once daily, take it 30 minutes before breakfast. Swallow it whole. Breaking the pill may cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Your blood sugar will need to be checked often. Do not change your medication dose or schedule.
