Side Effects of Glipizide

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with glipizide. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Based on studies of the extended-release version, the most common side effects include:
 
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Nervousness
  • Tremor or shakiness
  • Gas.
