Glyset Medication 

Glyset (miglitol) is an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor AGIs; it is prescribed to help control high blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes, adjunct with proper diet and exercise. Type 2 diabetes is the impairment of the body on how to use the insulin produced by the pancreas, leading to a build-up of sugar in the blood. Glyset works on the intestine; it slows the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates in the food eaten to lessen blood sugar rising after a meal. Carbohydrates are usually converted to simple sugars to be absorbed by the intestine; miglitol reduces the impact of dietary carbohydrates on blood sugar. It is essential to manage your diabetes to lessen the risks of heart attack and stroke; it can also help prevent kidney damage, sexual function problems, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and blindness.  

This medicine is not intended for type 1 diabetes; inform your doctor or pharmacist of your medical history before administration, especially kidney problems and bowel problems such as ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, or blockage. 

Glyset Dosing 

Miglitol may interact with charcoal, digoxin, digestive enzymes like amylase, pancrelipase, pancreatin, and other diabetes medications; inform your doctor on all other medicines you are taking to avoid drug interactions. The dose and length of medication are based on the patient’s medical condition and response to the treatment. This medicine is available in tablet form in strengths of 25 mg and 50 mg usually taken three times a day with the first bite of the meal. 

Glyset 25 mg once a day is the usual initial dose given to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal adverse effects; after 4 to 8 weeks on the initial dose, maintenance of 50 mg can be administered three times a day, but some patients may require a dose of 100 mg three times daily. A doctor will check your blood sugar at intervals of three months to see if the therapeutic goal is achieved or an adjustment of dose is needed.  

Miglitol must be taken regularly at the same time of the day daily to help attain the benefits; if a dose is forgotten, take it as soon as remembered, but if it is near the time of the following intake schedule, skip the missed dose for double dosing is discouraged.
