Diabetes Medicine

Diabetes Medicine, commonly referred as diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar). This is caused either due to inadequate insulin production, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with diabetes generally experience various symptoms like increased thirst, urination and hunger. Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are type 2, and we bring forth a wide range of medicines for its effective treatment. People with obesity and a strong family history of diabetes are in higher risk of type 2 diabetes. Our medicines contain excellent active ingredients that cause your body to respond better to the insulin produced by pancreas.

Amaryl

Amaryl is recommended to patients to with type 2 diabetes. It has glimepiride as a major ingredient in its composition that helps control blood sugar level. This is an oral blood sugar- lowering medicine that belongs to a group of medicines for controlling diabetes called sulfonylureas. Patients with type 2 diabetes do not require insulin to control the blood sugar. Instead, diet and oral medications often are sufficient. Moreover, this medication for management of blood sugar also helps decrease the risk of eye, kidney, and nerve damage.


Call your doctor at once if you have:
  • Pale or yellowed skin, dark colored urine, fever, confusion or weakness
  • Severe skin reaction--fever, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body), sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue and causes blistering and peeling
Common Amaryl side effects may include:
  • Headache
  • Dizziness, weakness
  • Nausea
  • Flu symptoms


Do not use Amaryl, in following conditions:
  • If you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis
  • If you are allergic to sulfa drugs, or if you have heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, an enzyme deficiency (g6pd), adrenal or pituitary gland problems
  • If you are under-nourished
  • If you are allergic to glimepiride
  • If you are recovering from an injury, operation, infections with fever, or from other forms of stress
  • If you have a severe liver or kidney disorder
Some important safety information:

Take care not to let your blood sugar get too low. The major causes of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) are skipping a meal, exercising for too long, drinking alcohol, or stress. Symptoms include headache, hunger, weakness, sweating, tremor, irritability, or trouble concentrating. In case you have low blood sugar level, carry hard candy or glucose tablets with you. In addition to it, other sugar sources include orange juice and milk.

Cozaar

Cozaar contains losartan that belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. The medication is widely recommended to patients for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). This drug keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. In addition to this, the medication is also used to lower the risk of stroke in certain people with heart disease, slow down the long- term kidney damage in people with type 2 diabetes.

  • Limit alcohol while using this medication because it can increase your risk of lactic acidosis and developing low blood sugar

Glucophage Xr

Glucophage XR is extended-release tablets, highly recommended for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is basically a biguanide antidiabetic that effectively works by decreasing the amount of sugar produced by liver and absorbed by intestines. The major active ingredient in the medicine is metformin that lowers blood glucose (sugar) by making your body more sensitive to insulin you naturally produce. The major cause of diabetes is a decrease in production of insulin that further causes maximum production of glucose by the liver and minimum uptake of insulin on fat and muscle tissues. This medication increases the sensitivity of muscle, liver, fat and other tissues to the uptake and effects of insulin, thus lowering the level of sugar in the blood.

Micronase

Micronase contains glyburide as a main active ingredient. This medication belongs to a group of oral blood-glucose-lowering drugs of the sulfonylurea class. It is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. The medication is highly recommended to patients with type 2 diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that produced by the pancreas and when released into the blood, it reduces the formation of glucose by the liver and causes cells in the body to remove the glucose from the blood. In case of type 2 diabetes, the level of glucose in blood increases due to the resistance of cells in bodies to the effect of insulin. Glyburide reduces glucose in the blood by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin.


Serious side effects:
  • Nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • Headache, trouble concentrating, memory problems, feeling unsteady, hallucinations, fainting, seizure, shallow breathing or breathing that stops
  • Pale skin, confusion or weakness
  • Easy bruising or bleeding, purple or red pinpoint spots under your skin

Less serious side effects may include:
  • Blurred vision
  • Mild itching or skin rash
  • Mild nausea, heartburn, feeling full
  • Joint or muscle pain

  • Check your blood sugar levels as directed by your doctor
  • Micronase may cause low blood sugar levels. It is a good idea to carry a reliable source of glucose (eg, tablets or gel) to treat low blood sugar. If this is not available, you should eat or drink a quick source of sugar like table sugar, honey, candy, orange juice, or non-diet soda.
  • Micronase may commonly cause stomach upset, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea at the beginning of treatment. If you develop unusual or unexpected stomach problems, or if you develop stomach problems later during treatment, contact your doctor at once. This may be a sign of lactic acidosis.
  • Use Micronase with caution in the elderly; they may be more sensitive to its effects. Low blood sugar levels may also be more difficult to recognize in the elderly.
  • Micronase should not be taken if you are pregnant or breastfeeding

Onglyza

Onglyza contains saxagliptin as the major active ingredient. It is an oral diabetes medicine that works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating, helping in controlling the blood sugar level. This drug is specially recommended for people with type 2 diabetes. The major active ingredient saxagliptin is an orally-active inhibitor of the DPP4 enzyme that increases the amount of insulin that body produces after a meal. Insulin is a hormone that helps the body to abosrb sugar in the blood, preventing the blood sugar level from becoming too high. It can be also used with other medicines, diet and exercise for controlling blood-sugar levels.


Call your doctor at once if you have:
  • Severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, fast heart rate

Type 2 diabetes or non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is associated with obesity and generally occurs in adults with a strong family history of diabetes. This is caused by reduced insulin secretion from the pancreas after meals that further leads to high level of glucose in blood.


Call your doctor at once if you have:
  • Severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, fast heart rate
  • Pale or yellowed skin, dark colored urine, fever, confusion or weakness
  • Severe skin reaction--fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling
