 1  Lower my sugar reading of 400 Gained 7 pounds in three weeks feel less energy and decreased vision F 1 months
 4  Diabetes type II No side effects noted, except that it did not bring my blood sugar down below 130-140. I could not tolerate GLucophage so the doctor switched me to glipizide. Heck of a lot better than the side effects I had with Glucophage. Just wish it brought my blood sugar level lower. Actos was added to me regimen and now I have side effects again. May have to go on insulin. F 56 21 months
 3  diabetis WEIGHT GAIN, 20 pounds in 1 year, unable to get off. Lack of desire to exercise as before. I had been on Metformin 1000mg x 2 and Actos 30mg x 1 per day for one year with no results in lowering my blood sugar levels. Added 5 mg Glipizide. After being on Glipizide for 2 days all my counts went from 175+ in mornings to normal range around 125- mornings. Impressive, but I have no energy or interest in walking, which I did 4 miles x 5 or more per week for 7 years prior. Now after a year results are no longer there. Lack of walking?? Don't know. Did atkins diet, modified with fruit and healthful diet for 3 months, lost 1 pound. Last time on it I lost 30 pounds in 4 months. The weight gain is depressing. Now at 5mg no longer working. How much weight will I gain with higher levels? F 49 15 months

GLIPIZIDE  (GLIPIZIDE):  Glipizide is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. It may also be used with other diabetes medications. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Glipizide belongs to the class of drugs known as sulfonylureas. It lowers blood sugar by causing the release of your body's natural insulin.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
