Glycomet is used to treat type 2 (noninsulin-dependent) diabetes. Glycomet decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Glycomet increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood.
Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor first. Mostly you will be prescribed one 500 mg Glycomet tablet 3 times a day, while the 850 mg tablets are usually taken twice daily to give effective diabetes control. You should use Glycomet only as directed by your doctor.
If you have any of these symptoms, eat or drink a food or beverage with sugar in it, and call your doctor immediately; the side effects include: fast heartbeat, sweating, confusion, vision problems, shakiness, dizziness, numbness/tingling of the mouth, fatigue.
Consult your doctor if you had a history of heart, thyroid disease, or pituitary; any adrenal gland problems; hormone problems; or a severe infection. Tell your doctor about all kind of medications you are taking, as these may interfere with the ability of Glycomet to control your blood sugar level.
