Gliclazide is a medication that is used to help treat type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar, also known as glucose. The body becomes resistant to insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. This means that the body is not able to use insulin effectively to move glucose from the blood into the cells where it is needed for energy. This means that blood sugar levels become elevated which can lead to a variety of health problems over time.

For more information on gliclazide tablets please refer to the patient information leaflet:

Gliclazide belongs to a class of medications known as sulfonylureas. These medications work by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin. Gliclazide helps to lower blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of insulin in the body. It is important to note that Gliclazide is not used to treat type 1 diabetes, a condition in which the body does not produce insulin. 

Yes, gliclazide is an effective medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is, however, important to note that gliclazide is not a cure for diabetes and it does not address the underlying causes of the disease. It is important to work closely with a healthcare provider  to develop a personalised treatment plan that meets individual needs and goals.

By stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin, gliclazide will help to lower blood sugar levels and improve glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes.

Gliclizide Tablets

Gliclazide tablets are usually taken orally, with or shortly after a meal. The specific dosing instructions for gliclazide will depend on individual factors such as age, weight, other medical conditions, and other medications being taken. Here is some advice for taking gliclazide:

  • Ensure you take gliclazide exactly as it has been prescribed for you
  • Take your medication with or shortly after a meal
  • Swallow tablets whole
  • If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember

Clinical studies have shown that gliclazide is effective in lowering blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. The effectiveness of gliclazide can vary depending on individual factors such as age, weight, other medical conditions, and other medications being taken.

Gliclazide typically starts working within a few hours after taking the medication. It reaches its peak effectiveness at around 4-6 hours after ingestion and lasts for up to 24 hours. The time it takes for gliclazide to work can vary depending on individual factors such as age, weight, other medical conditions, and other medications being taken.

Gliclazide tablets are generally considered safe to use every day. However, as with any medication, there can be risks associated with long-term use. It is important to work closely with a healthcare provider to monitor for any potential side effects and to make any necessary adjustments to the medication or treatment plan.

Gliclizide Dose

The correct dosage of gliclazide can vary depending on individual factors such as age, weight, kidney function, and other medical conditions. The dosage will also depend on the formulation of the medication, as there are different strengths of gliclazide tablets available. The strength of Gliclazide that you can purchase from UK Meds is either 40 or 80mg. 

The usual starting dose of gliclazide for adults is 40mg - 80mg once daily, taken with breakfast or the first meal of the day. The maximum daily dose of gliclazide is 320mg, but the recommended dose will vary depending on individual factors and may be lower.

Yes, gliclazide may interact with other drugs. It is important to inform your healthcare provider of all medications and supplements you are taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal supplements, to avoid potential drug interactions.

There are several alternative treatments available for managing diabetes in addition to traditional medication and lifestyle changes. Some alternative medications you can purchase from UK Meds include Metformin, Glucophage and Jardiance.

Gliclazide Side Effects

Like all prescription medications, some people may experience some side effects when they are using Gliclazide. Some of the more common side effects include:

  • Weight gain
  • Stomach upset
  • Skin reactions
  • Blood disorders
  • Liver dysfunction

If you experience any of these side effects while taking gliclazide, it is important to inform your healthcare provider.

It is generally not recommended to take gliclazide during pregnancy. While there is limited information available on the use of gliclazide during pregnancy, there are concerns that it could potentially harm the developing foetus.

There are a number of warnings that Gliclazide comes with. It is important that you read the information leaflet included in the packaging to fully inform yourself of these warnings. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to get in touch with your healthcare provider for further information and advice. 

It is generally not recommended to drink alcohol while taking gliclazide. Alcohol can interact with gliclazide and increase the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Alcohol can interfere with the liver's ability to release glucose into the bloodstream, which can cause blood sugar levels to drop too low.

Here are some reviews from real users of Gliclazide:

“This medicine had immediate control of my diabetes within taking of three doses.”

“I take Gliclazide to control my Diabetes, it is combined with Metformin this combination works well for me.”
