Product Description

Product Overview


USES

Diaros ® is a combination of two drugs, rosiglitazone and glimepiride. It is used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin-dependent diabetes). Effectively controlling high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, blindness, and circulation problems, as well as sexual function problems (impotence).

Rosiglitazone-containing medications are best used only when other medications (metformin) cannot be taken.

Rosiglitazone belongs to a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones or “glitazones”. It works by helping to restore your body’s proper response to insulin, thereby lowering your blood sugar.

Dosage

Diaros ® take by mouth, usually once daily with the first meal of the day or as directed by your doctor.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Do not take more than 8 milligrams of rosiglitazone/4 milligrams of glimepiride per day.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to take it at the same time each day. Monitor your blood sugar levels on a regular basis, and share the results with your doctor.

It may take up to 2-3 months before the full benefit of this drug takes effect.

SIDE EFFECTS

Headache or sore throat may occur.
If either of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor.
This medication can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
This effect may occur if you do not consume enough calories (from food, juices, fruit, etc.).
The symptoms include chills, cold sweat, blurred vision, dizziness, drowsiness, shaking, rapid heart rate, weakness, headache, fainting, tingling of the hands/feet, and hunger.
It is a good habit to carry glucose tablets or gel to treat low blood sugar.
If you are in a situation where you don’t have these reliable forms of glucose, eat a quick source of sugar such as table sugar, honey, or candy, or drink a glass of orange juice or non-diet soda to quickly raise your blood sugar level.
Tell your doctor immediately about the reaction. To help prevent hypoglycemia, eat meals on a regular schedule and do not skip meals.

Symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) include thirst, increased urination, confusion, drowsiness, flushing, rapid breathing, and fruity breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell your doctor immediately. Your medication dosage may need to be increased.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
