Precautions And Safety Warnings/ Overdose

Glucotrol may cause drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, or light-headedness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Glucotrol with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.

Check with your doctor before you drink alcohol while you are taking Glucotrol. Alcohol may increase the risk of low blood sugar. Rarely, alcohol may interact with Glucotrol and cause a serious reaction with symptoms such as flushing, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, or stomach pain. Discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor.

Carry an ID card at all times that says you have diabetes. Check your blood sugar levels as directed by your doctor. If they are often higher or lower than they should be and you take Glucotrol exactly as prescribed, tell your doctor.

Proper diet, regular exercise, and regular blood sugar testing are important for best results with Glucotrol. Follow the diet and exercise program given to you by your health care provider.

Glucotrol may cause low blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar may make you anxious, sweaty, weak, dizzy, drowsy, or faint. It may also make your heart beat faster; make your vision change; give you a headache, chills, or tremors; or make you hungrier. It is a good idea to carry a reliable source of glucose (eg, tablets or gel) to treat low blood sugar. If this is not available, you should eat or drink a quick source of sugar like table sugar, honey, candy, orange juice, or non-diet soda. This will raise your blood sugar level quickly. Tell your doctor right away if this happens. To prevent low blood sugar, eat meals at the same time each day and do not skip meals.

Risk of low blood sugar may be increased by severe or prolonged exercise, drinking alcohol, or skipping meals.

These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.
