Glipizide

What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much glipizide may have overdose symptoms that could include:
 
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) (see Glipizide and Blood Sugar)
  • Fainting
  • Shakiness
  • Fast heartbeat (tachycardia)
  • Confusion
  • Sweating.
     
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention.

How Should Glipizide Be Stored?

Glipizide should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture or heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
 
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your glipizide as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
