Rosiglitazone How to Take

Rosiglitazone belongs to the class of medications called thiazolidinediones. It is used to lower the high blood sugar associated with Type 2 Diabetes. Rosiglitazone reduces levels of blood glucose (sugar in the blood) by helping insulin to work more effectively and allowing the cells of the body to take glucose in more easily. The full effects of Rosiglitazone are usually seen within 8 to 12 weeks.

Rosiglitazone is used to lower blood glucose when diet, exercise, and weight reduction have not lowered blood glucose levels enough on their own. It is used for people who cannot take other oral (taken by mouth) diabetes medications or in cases where these medications are not effective. Lowering and controlling blood glucose levels may help prevent or delay complications of diabetes such as heart disease, Kidney Disease, or blindness.

Rosiglitazone may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Rosiglitazone may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Rosiglitazone may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Rosiglitazone for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Rosiglitazone, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Rosiglitazone without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Rosiglitazone to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Rosiglitazone if their doctor has not prescribed it.

  • stop taking one of the medications,

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Rosiglitazone. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Rosiglitazone Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health.

If you develop fluid buildup or swelling, shortness of breath, fatigue, or excessive weight gain while taking Rosiglitazone, contact your doctor immediately. People with a history of heart failure should not take rosiglitazone.

Since the risk of heart failure and fluid buildup increases when rosiglitazone is used with other antidiabetes medications, rosiglitazone should only be used alone or in combination with a sulfonylurea (such as Glyburide or Gliclazide) OR Metformin, but not with other diabetes medications (such as insulin), and not with both a sulfonylurea AND metformin together.

Fractures: Women taking rosiglitazone may be at an increased risk of bone fractures, especially of the upper arm, hand, and foot. Discuss the risk and benefits of using Rosiglitazone with your doctor.

Heart attack and chest pain: Rosiglitazone can increase the risk of chest pain (Angina) and heart attacks. If you have underlying heart disease, or are at a high risk of heart attack, discuss the risks and benefits of using Rosiglitazone with your doctor. Rosiglitazone is not recommended for people who take nitrates (e.g., Nitroglycerin, isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate), which are used to relieve chest pain.

Liver: Rosiglitazone may cause liver damage. Your doctor will monitor your liver function while you are taking Rosiglitazone. Report any signs of liver problems to your doctor at once. These signs include:
