Precose

Precose is a glucosidase inhibitor. Adults who are unable to control their diabetes by diet alone are usually given this drug.
Drug Uses

Precose is used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults whose diabetes cannot be managed with diet alone. A certain enzyme turns carbohydrates into glucose. Precose slows down that enzyme. This decreases blood sugar levels following a meal.

Usage

Medication must always be taken as advised by your medical practitioner/physician. If you are unsure, then please contact your physician for precise instructions. On the other hand, the medicine label usually contains dosage instructions which also may be followed.

Precose must be taken with a meal by mouth. Do not take charcoal or digestive enzyme preparations within 2 to 4 hours before after taking Precose .

Drug Class and Mechanism

Precose falls under glucosidase inhibitor and it works by slowing down the enzyme that turns carbohydrates into glucose; this decreases blood sugar levels following a meal.

Missed Dose

You must maintain a schedule for taking the medicine at the same time each day so that you do not miss out on any doses. But, in the advent of a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember so that you can compensate for the loss of the dose.

But, then you may need to adjust your remaining doses accordingly. And if it is almost time for the next dose, then please skip the missed dose and continue with the normal schedule.

Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.

Storage

Precose must be stored at a cool and dark place that prevents it from direct exposure to sunlight. It should also be protected from kids and pets. You can store it at room temperature between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C).
Side Effects

It is common to experience some temporary and mildly annoying side effects as the body adjusts to the new drug. These rarely require any special medical attention and usually fade away automatically.

These include bloating; diarrhea; gas; nausea; stomach pain; vomiting.

But, if they refuse to fade away or become bothersome, then seek medical attention immediately.

On the other hand, if you experience serious side effects like severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); severe stomach pain; yellowing of skin or eyes.


Seek immediate medical attention if you notice any of these side effects.

In some cases, you may also notice side effects that are not listed here. In such cases, seek medical attention.
