Acarbose

Generic Name: Acarbose

Product Description

Acarbose is used for treating type 2 diabetes. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may be used alone or with other antidiabetic medicines. Acarbose is a glucosidase inhibitor. It works by slowing down the enzyme that turns carbohydrates into glucose. This results in a smaller rise in blood sugar levels following a meal.

Before using acarbose: Some medical conditions may interact with acarbose. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you: if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances if you have stomach or bowel problems, liver problems or unexplained abnormal liver function tests, or kidney problems Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with acarbose. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following: Anticoagulants (eg, warfarin) because the risk of their side effects, including bleeding, may be increased by acarbose Calcium channel blockers (eg, verapamil), corticosteroids (eg, prednisone), diuretics (eg, hydrochlorothiazide), estrogen, isoniazid, nicotinic acid, oral contraceptives (birth control pills), phenothiazines (eg, chlorpromazine), phenytoin, sympathomimetics (eg, pseudoephedrine), or thyroid hormones (eg, levothyroxine) because they may increase the risk of high blood sugar levels Insulin or sulfonylureas (eg, glyburide) because they may increase the risk of low blood sugar levels Digoxin because its effectiveness may be decreased by acarbose It may be harder to control your blood sugar during times of stress, such as fever, infection, injury, or surgery. Talk with your doctor about how to control your blood sugar if any of these occur. Do not change the dose of your medicine without checking with your doctor. Acarbose does not usually cause low blood sugar. Low blood sugar may be more likely to occur if you skip a meal, exercise heavily, or drink alcohol. It may also be more likely if you take acarbose along with certain medicines for diabetes (eg, sulfonylureas, insulin). Tell your doctor right away if you experience symptoms of low blood sugar (eg, fast heartbeat, headache, chills, sweating, tremors, increased hunger, vision changes, nervousness, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, fainting). It is a good idea to carry a reliable source of glucose (eg, tablets or gel) to treat low blood sugar. This will raise your blood sugar level quickly. Because acarbose prevents the breakdown of table (cane) sugar, be sure to use glucose (dextrose), not sugar or fruits, to treat symptoms of low blood sugar. Contact your health care provider if you have any questions. Serious and sometimes fatal liver problems have happened with acarbose. Call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of liver problems (eg, dark urine, pale stools, persistent loss of appetite, right-sided stomach pain, unusual or severe nausea or tiredness, yellowing of the skin or eyes). Acarbose may interfere with certain lab tests. Be sure your doctor and lab personnel know you are taking acarbose.
