This diabetes medication is a combination of 2 drugs (glipizide and metformin). It is used along with a diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes.Glipizide is a sulfonylurea and works by stimulating the release of your body’s natural insulin and by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes. Metformin is a biguanide and works by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. Both of these medications work by helping to restore your body’s proper response to the insulin you naturally produce.
Nausea, diarrhea, stomach upset, muscle aches, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. If stomach symptoms return later (after you are on the same dose for several days or weeks), tell your doctor right away. Stomach symptoms that occur after the first days of your treatment may be a sign of lactic acidosis.
This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
