Glipizide Problems

As with many other medications, glipizide (Glucotrol®) can sometimes cause adverse reactions. Some of the most common problems with glipizide include side effects, such as:
 
  • Diarrhea
  • Nervousness
  • Dizziness
  • Shakiness.
     
If side effects do occur, they tend to be minor and easy to treat. However, there are some potentially serious glipizide reactions that require immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience problems such as:
 
  • High blood sugar
  • Low blood sugar
  • Difficulty breathing.
     
Other warnings and precautions apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies. Also, you may not be able to take glipizide if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, pituitary gland problems, or cirrhosis.
