Glipizide 10 mg Tablets

Glipizide (Glucotrol®), a prescription drug, is used to keep blood sugar under control in adults with type 2 diabetes (also known as noninsulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes). It is often used when blood sugar cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone.
Regular glipizide comes in two strengths:
  • 5-mg tablets
  • 10-mg tablets.
Extended-release glipizide is available in three strengths:
  • 2.5-mg tablets
  • 5-mg tablets
  • 10-mg tablets.
Regular glipizide works best if taken 30 minutes before breakfast. Extended-release glipizide should be taken with breakfast. Both types should be taken at the same time(s) each day -- this will help maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
