FAQs

Q. Can I take Gibtulio with insulin?

Yes, Gibtulio can be used with insulin. However, it may cause hypoglycemia (low blood glucose levels) when used with insulin or sulfonylurea group of antidiabetics. So, a regular monitoring of blood sugar is important when they are used together.

Q. Can Gibtulio be given with metformin?

Yes, Gibtulio can be taken with metformin. A combined use of the two medicines can significantly improve blood glucose levels and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c). The combination helps in weight loss as compared to when either of the medicine is taken alone. The side effects of using the medicines together is similar to those that occur when they are used alone.

Q. Can I stop taking Gibtulio?

No, do not stop taking Gibtulio without consulting your doctor. This can lead to a sudden increase in your blood glucose levels. The dosage and duration of the treatment should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. Never stop taking any medicine without consulting your doctor.

Q. What effect does Gibtulio have on patients with kidney disease?

Gibtulio is not recommended for use in patients with moderate to severe renal impairment. It may cause an increase in creatinine, phosphorus and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and can cause a fall in blood pressure (hypotension). So, inform your doctor if you have an underlying kidney disease before taking this medicine.

Q. Can I take Gibtulio and glimepiride together?

Gibtulio and sulfonylureas like glimepiride, gliclazide, glyburide or glibenclamide can be taken together as it can control blood sugar levels better. Use of Gibtulio can also help in lowering the risk of weight gain caused by sulfonylureas. However, the risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) can increase. Consult your doctor as a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.

Q. What is the difference between Gibtulio and sitagliptin?

Both Gibtulio and sitagliptin are antidiabetic drugs, but they work in different ways. Gibtulio is reported to be more effective in controlling blood sugar levels and also helps in weight loss while sitagliptin is weight neutral. While the use of sitagliptin is associated with nausea, nasopharyngitis, and pancreatitis, Gibtulio commonly causes urinary and genital tract infections.

Q. Is there any benefit of taking Gibtulio and canagliflozin together?

No, it is not advisable to take Gibtulio with canagliflozin. Both belong to the same class of antidiabetic drugs and work in the same way. Together they may be more efficacious but there could also be an increased risk of side effects caused by them.

Q. What effect does Gibtulio have on weight?

Gibtulio along with well-balanced diet and exercise works effectively in lowering blood glucose levels and weight loss in type 2 diabetes patients. Gibtulio works by removing glucose through urine. Removal of glucose leads to the removal of calories further resulting in weight loss.
