What is Onglyza?
Onglyza or saxagliptin is an oral diabetes medication that helps control blood sugar levels. It is for people with type 2 diabetes. Onglyza is sometimes used in combination with other diabetes medications. Onglyza is not used for treating type 1 diabetes.
Controlling high sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes will help prevent kidney problems, nerve problems, blindness, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of sugar may lessen our risk of a heart attack or a stroke.
How does Onglyza work?
Onglyza works by increasing the levels of incretins to help control blood sugar by increasing insulin, especially after a meal. Incretins also decreases the amount of sugar produced in the liver, which your stomach and intestines absorb.
What are the benefits of using Onglyza?
The benefits of Onglyza include the production of more incretins that helps control blood sugar by increasing insulin, especially after a meal. Incretin also decreases the amount of sugar produced in the liver, which your stomach and intestines absorb.
Onglyza is beneficial in helping to lower blood sugar which results in the decrease of the risk of a heart attack and a stroke.
How do I use Onglyza?
Read the medication guide that comes with the package of the product before you start using Onglyza and each time you get a refill.
Take Onglyza by mouth without or without a meal as directed by your doctor, usually once a day.
Do not split or cut the tablet before taking it. Follow your doctor’s direction on how to properly take this medication.
Take Onglyza regularly to get the most benefit from it. Also, take the medication at about the same time each day to help you remember that you have to take a dose.
Carefully follow the treatment plan, meal plan, and exercise program that your doctor has recommended.
The usual dose of Onglyza is one tablet a day taken by mouth with a drink of water.
Your doctor based your dosage of Onglyza based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and the other medications that you may be currently taking.
Side effects & precautions
Your doctor has prescribed Onglyza because he believes that the benefits to you are greater than the risks of side effects. Many individuals who use Onglyza do not experience any serious side effects.
Immediately inform your doctor if you have any serious side effects, such as joint pain, signs of heart failure, or unusual skin blisters.
Onglyza itself does not cause low blood sugar but low blood sugar or hypoglycemia may occur when Onglyza is prescribed with another diabetes medication. Discuss with your doctor about the dose of your other medications if you frequently experience low blood sugar.
Symptoms of low blood sugar include shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, blurred vision, dizziness, or tingling of the hands or feet. You should always carry with you glucose tablets just in case you experience low blood sugar.
Low blood sugar is likely to occur if you consume too much alcohol or perform unusually heavy exercises. It may occur also if you do not consume enough calories from your food. Eating regular meals will help prevent low blood sugar.
Symptoms of high blood sugar include thirst, confusion, increased thirst, drowsiness, rapid breathing, flushing, and fruity breath odour. If you experience high blood sugar, report it to your doctor immediately. He may need to adjust the dose of your medications.
Get medical help right away if you experience any very serious side effects such as disease of the pancreas.
A very serious allergic reaction to Onglyza is very rare. Get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, such as rash, itching, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.
Before you start taking Onglyza, tell your doctor if you are allergic to it, or if you have any other forms of allergy. Onglyza may contain inactive ingredients that may trigger allergic reactions.
Before using Onglyza, tell your doctor about your medical history, especially of kidney disease, a disease of the pancreas, heart failure, or stones in your gallbladder.
When you have hypoglycemia, you may experience blurred vision or dizziness. Do not drive a vehicle or operate machinery or perform any activity that requires alertness or clear vision until you are sure that you can perform the activities.
Limit your alcohol consumption because it may contribute to hypoglycemia.
It is harder to control your blood sugar when you are under stress. Consult your doctor about the possible change in your treatment plan if you know that you will be in a situation where you will be exposed to stress, such as undergoing a surgery
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or it may increase the risk of serious side effects. Share with your doctor a list of all the medications you are currently taking in order for him to determine if any one of them will interact with Onglyza. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medication without consulting first with your doctor because many medications can affect your blood sugar, making it harder to control.
