Tolinase

Tolinase is a popular diabetes medication used to help regulate glucose levels. Also known by its generic name of Tolazamide, it can be used as the sole prescribed medication for diabetics, or it can be implemented with other drugs for treatment. Tolinase can also be prescribed for other medical conditions, too.

There are certain side effects that are associated with this medication. For instance, individuals who are prone to hyperglycemia should not mix Tolinase with other drugs used to raise blood sugar levels, as this can amplify the effects.

There are other medicines that can also interact with Tolinase to cause hypoglycemic episodes.. Some of these include: diuretics, diet pills, certain hormones including birth control pills, some seizure medications, thyroid medicines and steroids.

Hypoglycemic episodes are also possible when combining Tolinase with beta blockers, blood thinners, aspirin, non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications, as well as others. There are also mild and severe side effects possible wen taking this medication by itself.

Tolinase should always be handled precisely as it was intended. This medication should always be stored in a cool, dry environment and always away from moisture. It is important that it be taken exactly as it is prescribed by your physician.

It is generally recommended that a dosage of one pill be taken first thing in the morning with your first meal of the day, accompanied by a glass of water. If a dosage is missed, it should be taken as soon as you remember it, unless it is close to the time for your next dosage. In this case, you are to continue on with your normal routine and never double up on a dosage as an attempt to make up for the missed one.
