Generic Glucotrol XL tablets are indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition in which the glucose level in blood increases to high levels.

Dosage & Administration

The dosage of these tablets can be best advised by your doctor but the usual normal dosage may be the following.

During initial therapy the recommended dose is 5 mg per day and should be taken with food. Patients who have developed sensitivity to hypoglycemic drugs may be administered with an initial dose lower than that.

The dosage of Generic Glucotrol XL tablets is dependent on the measures of glycemic control which should be taken at an interval of every three months. If preceding three months show inadequate glycemic control, then the dosage may be increased but even if after increasing the dose no improvement is seen after three months, then the old dosage is recommended.

Most patients have responded to 5 mg to 10 mg taken once daily. Some patients may require up to the maximum recommended daily dose of 20 mg but the dosage should not exceed 20 mg per day.

Patients with stable type 2 diabetes receiving insulin may be given treatment with these tablets but cautiously.

For patients who take 20 units or less of insulin daily may begin with the usual dose 5mg to 10mg of Glipizide per day and stop taking insulin but titration steps should be at interval of several days.

For patients who take more than 20 units of insulin daily may begin with the usual dose 5mg to 10mg of Glipizide per day but the insulin taken should be reduced to 50%. But titration steps should be at interval of several days.

Patients receiving other oral hypoglycemic agents may be administered with Glipizide SR tablets but should be carefully monitored for one to two weeks with the usual recommended dosage.
