Ok, so I finally got the information about the drug Mom is on.
It is Glipizide 5 mg 2 times daily...but he requested she only take a half pill each time, making it 2.5 mg 2 times daily.
Glipizide is the generic of Glucotrol.
I am going to look up this drug and see what I can find on it.
He also suggested she check her blood sugar multiple times throughout the day...do you know those testing strips are expensive...and her insurance won't cover them. Anyone know how to get those cheaper? She has the one touch mini, and it is like a hundred bucks for a hundred strips. Considering she is on so many other meds, and only Dad is working, she is too ill, a hundred bucks for these strips is just out of control.
Thanks for listening, and thanks for the help.
If anyone is on or knows anything about this drug, I appriciate the info.
