AVANDIA (rosiglitazone maleate) is an oral diabetes medication that works by improving insulin sensitivity. AVANDIA improves glycemic control while lowering insulin levels in the blood.
Rosiglitazone maleate is not chemically or functionally related to the sulfonylureas, the biguanides, or the alpha-glucosidase inhibitors.
WHAT IS AVANDIA?
Avandia (rosiglitazone) is an oral diabetes medication that aids in blood sugar control. In individuals with type 2 diabetes, Avandia is taken in conjunction with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar management. Avandia is not approved for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.
Insulin should not be taken with Avandia. If you take this medicine while taking insulin, you run the risk of developing major cardiac problems.
Store at room temperature away from light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep all medications away from children and pets.
Rosiglitazone is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. 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. Rosiglitazone belongs to the class of drugs known as glitazones. It lowers blood sugar by helping to restore your body’s proper response to insulin.
If someone has overdosed and has serious symptoms such as passing out or trouble breathing, call 911. Otherwise, call a poison control center right away.
Congestive heart failure can be caused or worsened by Avandia. If you have severe or uncontrolled heart failure, you should not use this medication.
If you have shortness of breath (particularly when lying down), unusual tiredness, edema, or rapid weight gain, stop taking Avandia and contact your doctor right once.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE AVANDIA?
Follow your doctor’s instructions when taking Avandia. Read all drug guides or instruction sheets and follow all guidelines on your prescription label. Your doctor may adjust your dose from time to time. Avandia can be taken with or without food.
You may feel unusually hungry, dizzy, irritated, confused, anxious, or shaky if you have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Eat or drink a fast-acting source of sugar to quickly correct hypoglycemia (fruit juice, hard candy, crackers, raisins, or non-diet soda).
AVANDIA SIDE EFFECTS
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Avandia (hives, itching, dizziness, rapid heartbeats, difficult breathing, swelling in your face or throat) or a severe skin reaction (fever, sore throat, burning eyes, skin pain, red or purple skin rash with blistering and peeling).
Stop using this medicine and call your doctor at once if you have symptoms of liver damage: nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).
