What is Glucobay used for?


Glucobay (acarbose) is used alone or in combination with a sulfonylurea (such as tolbutamide, chlorpropamide), metformin, or insulin to lower blood glucose in adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in addition to proper diet, exercise and weight reduction. Glucobay will slow the absorption of glucose from your gut to reduce the high blood glucose levels that occur after each meal. Take the tablets as prescribed by your doctor. Tablets should be taken orally with the first bite of a main meal. Do not take Glucobay between meals. You should continue to monitor your blood glucose levels according to the instructions given to you by your healthcare professional. Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse (your blood sugar is too high or too low). Glucobay is not recommended for use in children under 18 years of age.

What Are The Possible Side Effects of Glucobay?


Some of the common side effects of Glucobay are gastrointestinal in nature, such as flatulence (gas), abdominal discomfort and diarrhea. Glucobay may also cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Some serious side effects include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain. These are not all the possible side effects of Glucobay. In case of any unexpected effect, consult your healthcare professional immediately.

Are there any Precautions and Drug interactions for Glucobay?


Glucobay in combination with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Symptoms of low blood sugar include sudden sweating, shaking, fast heartbeat, hunger, blurred vision, dizziness, or tingling hands/feet. Do not use table sugar or drink non-diet soda to relieve these symptoms because acarbose slows the breakdown of table sugar. Carry glucose tablets or gel with you to treat low blood sugar. If you don't have these reliable forms of glucose, eat some honey or drink a glass of orange juice to quickly raise your blood sugar. You should also test your blood sugar according to instructions given to you by your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Glucobay.
