Dr. Sfurti Mann
Diabetes Specialist
Voglibose and pioglitazone both are medications used for diabetes but there mechanism of action is different and so are their side effects. Voglibose acts to reduce post prandial blood glucose whereas pioglitazone improves insulin sensitivity and improves glycemic control. Voglibose causes gastric side effects and sometimes affects the liver whereas pioglitazone should not be given to patients with heart ailments as it can worsen heart failure.

FAQs

Q. Is Zilarta better than telmisartan?

Both Zilarta and telmisartan are blood pressure-lowering medicines. Zilarta is a relatively new medicine. It has been found to be as effective as telmisartan in lowering blood pressure. It can be safely used in patients as it has fewer side effects.

Q. How should I take Zilarta?

You should take Zilarta exactly as directed by your doctor. It is for oral use and is usually taken once a day. You should take it with plenty of water, with or without food. It is recommended that you take this medicine at the same time every day.

Q. Can I stop Zilarta on my own?

No, do not stop taking Zilarta without speaking to your doctor, even if you are feeling well or your blood pressure is controlled. Stopping it suddenly may increase your blood pressure which may increase your risk of stroke.

Q. How long does Zilarta take to start working?

Zilarta may take about 2 weeks to show a visible reduction in blood pressure. Full benefits of Zilarta may take a little longer, about 4 weeks.

Q. What are the symptoms of overdose of Zilarta?

Taking more than the recommended dose of Zilarta may decrease your blood pressure due to which you may feel dizzy or may even faint. Consult your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical aid in a nearby hospital.

Q. Which class does Zilarta belong to?

Zilarta belongs to a class of medicines called angiotensin II receptor antagonists (AIIRAs). Angiotensin II is a substance which occurs naturally in the body. It tightens the blood vessels, which in turn increases the blood pressure. Zilarta blocks this effect so that the blood vessels relax, which helps lower your blood pressure.

Q. What is the most important information I should know about Zilarta?

It is important for you to know that this medicine can cause harm or death to your unborn baby. Therefore, if you are planning a pregnancy or have become pregnant, consult your doctor right away. Your doctor may switch you to a different medicine to treat your high blood pressure.

Q. Who should not take Zilarta?

You should not take Zilarta if you are allergic to it or if you are pregnant. Avoid its use if you have diabetes or impaired kidney function and are being treated with a blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren.
