Drug Uses
Pioglitazone is used for cure and treatment of type 2 diabetes in certain patients. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may be used alone or with other antidiabetic medicines or as determined by your doctor.

 

How Taken
You can take Pioglitazone with or without a meal. Continue to take Pioglitazone even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses. Taking Pioglitazone at the same time each day will help you remember to take it.

 

Missed Dose
This is advised to take the Missed Dose as soon as you remember but if it is almost time for the next dose then skip that Missed Dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not consume double dose in any case to make up for a missed one.

 

Storage
Store Pioglitazone away from heat, moisture, and light and store at 77 °F (25 °C). Keep in a tight, light–resistant container and out of the reach of children . Do not store in the bathroom. 

 

More Information

Warnings/Precautions
Let your doctor or pharmacist informed before you take the Glucotrol or if you have any kind of medical complications like allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances, if you are allergic to any ingredient in Actos, if you have a history of liver problems, abnormal liver function tests, heart problems (eg, congestive heart failure), eye or vision problems or have swelling problems (edema), if you have diabetic ketoacidosis (a severe problem associated with diabetes) if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breast–feeding. If you become pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Actos while you are pregnant. It is not known if Actos is found in breast milk. Do not breast–feed while taking Actos. Some medicines may interact with Actos. Therefore tell your doctor of all prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement that you are taking. Do not take Actos if you have type 1 diabetes. You should carry an ID card at all times that says you have diabetes. Proper diet, regular exercise, and regular blood sugar testing are important for best results with Actos. Follow the diet and exercise program given to you by your doctor. Check your blood sugar levels as directed by your doctor. If they are often higher than they should be and you take Actos exactly as prescribed, let your doctor know. It may be harder to control your blood sugar during times of stress such as fever, infection, injury, or surgery. Talk with your doctor about how to control your blood sugar if any of these occur. Do not change the dose of your medicine without checking with your doctor. Actos may lower your blood sugar levels when it is used along with insulin or other oral diabetic medicines. Low blood sugar may make you anxious, sweaty, weak, dizzy, drowsy, or faint. It may also make your heart beat faster, make your vision change, give you a headache, chills, or tremors, or make you hungrier. You should carry a reliable source of glucose (eg, tablets or gel) to treat low blood sugar. If this is not available, you should eat or drink a quick source of sugar like table sugar, honey, candy, orange juice, or non–diet soda. This will raise your blood sugar level quickly. Tell your doctor right away if this happens. To prevent low blood sugar, eat meals at the same time each day and do not skip meals. Actos may cause ovulation in women who have not reached menopause but do not ovulate. Be sure to use effective birth control while using Actos. Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Actos before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery. Actos may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor. Actos should not be used in children younger than 18 years old. Safety and effectiveness in these children have not been confirmed.
