Uses

Possible Side Effects

Hypoglycemia (blood sugar dropping too low) may occur on this medication—regular blood-glucose monitoring is essential. Nausea and appetite loss have also been reported; giving this medication with food may be helpful. Alert your veterinarian immediately if your cat becomes disinterested in their food or eating.

Drug & Food Interactions

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications your pet is taking while your pet is receiving glipizide, including vitamins and supplements. The effects may be lessened if used with chloramphenicol, furazolidone, sulfa drugs, NSAIDs and warfarin. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, certain diuretics (“water pills”), and cimetidine may change the effectiveness of Glipizide.

    So far so good

    By on

    I was worried about trying to control my cat's diabetes with insulin because I would have likely had to vary his dosage and track him carefully but these pills seem to be taking care of him. One in the morning and one at night his fur is almost completely back to normal and he has gained about a pound back in a little over a month. He is back up to his old tricks again too so after next month I will take him back to the vet for a check up just to be sure the dosage is high enough for him.
