Acarbose Overview

Acarbose (INN)[1] is an anti-diabetic drug used to treat diabetes mellitus type 2 and, in some countries, prediabetes. It is a generic sold in Europe and China as Glucobay (Bayer AG), in North America as Precose (Bayer Pharmaceuticals), and in Canada as Prandase (Bayer AG).

Glycomet 1 gm or Glycomet 1Gm (XR/SR) - Difference

I am now taking GLIZID 80 mg two tabs twice a day and Glycoment 850mg one tab twice a day plus Acarbose 50 mg twice a day. Now doctor advises me to take Glycomet 1gm in place of Glycomet 850gm . I find that Gycomet 1mg is in the XR form. How much metformin does Glycomet 1gm contain? What is the benefit of switching over to Gycomet 1gm (Extended Release)? Would it help more than Metformin 850gm (Regular)? Moreover, no metformin tablet 1gm without being in SR/XR form is vailable in the market. Kindly advise ## Is there any difference between glycomet 1gm and glycomet Sr 1gm. Doctor has prescribed me glycomet Sr 1gm but it is not available in the market. Only glycomet 1gm is available. Can I take glycomet 1gm instead of glycomet 1gm Sr?

Reclimet For Diabetes - Side Effects?

I am a Diabetic for nearly 40 years. For the last few years, I am taking 'Reclimet" daily. What are the possible side effects? Could it trigger higher blood pressure? Thanks. ## Sir, May I know how you managed diabetes for the last 40 years? I am quite young and type II diabetic. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Btw, I use recliment. My BP is 120/90 when I checked today. But donot know if it is because of the tablet, as I dont do regular exercise. ## Thanks. By God's grace, my type II Diabetes is fairly under control, with tablets only. Being a vegetarian and reducing consumption of rice (staple food), has helped, I think. The higher BP level has been recently detected. I am not sure, however, whether Reclimet might be one of the causes for elevated BP. ## Wh...

round white pill w/54 over 251 & reverse side blank

this pill is supposed to be acarbose 100mg but it doesn't match what I had before. The acarbose I took before had an M on one side & A over 100 on the other side. The acarbose this time is plain on one side with the number 54 up top & undernieth are the numbers 251. Both pills are round & white. ## Hello, Julie! How are you? This is a 100mg Arbacose tablet, since it is a generic, it's manufactured by several different companies and they'll all have different markings. It's most common side effect is diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?
