  • Drug Name

    Duetact (Glimepiride/Pioglitazone) 

    Drug Uses

    Duetact is used for treating type 2 diabetes in certain patients. It is used along with diet and exercise. 

    How to use

    Use Duetact as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

    An extra patient leaflet is available with Duetact . Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.

    Take Duetact by mouth with breakfast or the first main meal of the day unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Continue to take Duetact even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.

    Taking Duetact at the same time each day will help you remember to take it.

    Drug Class and Mechanism

    Duetact is a thiazolidinedione and sulfonylurea antidiabetic combination. It lowers blood sugar by making the cells of the body more sensitive to the action of insulin. It also causes the pancreas to release insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar. 

    Missed Dose

    If you miss a dose of Duetact , take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once. 

    Storage

    Store Duetact at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep in a tight, light-resistant container. Keep Duetact out of the reach of children and away from pets.
