How to take medication, before or after meals

glucotrol

Just want to know some more about this drug, my doctor just put me on it. ## Glucotrol is a medium-to-long acting anti-diabetic drug. Glucotrol works by blocking potassium channels in the beta cells of the islets of langerhans. By partially blocking the potassium channels, it will increase the time the cell spends in the calcium release stage of cell signaling leading to an increase in calcium. The increase in calcium will initiate more insulin release from each beta cell. To learn more information about this drug, please follow the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back so I can further assist you.
