Glyset (Miglitol) is a prescription medication used with recommended diets and exercise programs to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The active ingredient in Glyset is Miglitol. Miglitol belongs to the class of medication called Antidiabetics, Alpha-Glucosidase Inhibitors. It works by slowing down the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates from the intestine into the blood. As a result, there is a reduction in blood sugar after a meal. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, limb amputation, erectile dysfunction, and other problems associated with diabetes mellitus.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects of Glyset are nausea, vomiting, flatulence, abdominal pain, skin rash, and diarrhea.

• Blurred vision;
• Extreme thirst;
• Frequent urination;
• Symptoms of extremely low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) include confusion, sweating, and shakiness

Warnings and Interactions

Glyset comes as a tablet and should be taken orally with a cup of water, usually 3 times daily. It should be taken after each meal. Follow your doctor's prescription carefully. You may experience blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness due to extremely low or high blood sugar. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity requiring alertness or clear vision until you can safely perform such activities. Limit alcoholic beverages while taking this medication because it can increase your risk of developing low blood sugar. To prevent a sudden drop in blood sugar, it would be best to eat meals on a regular schedule and not skip meals. Monitor your blood sugar regularly and inform your doctor if there is no progressive drop in your blood sugar. Treating diabetes is a lifetime treatment; hence, do not stop using your antidiabetic at any point.
