Adiaben is a medication that helps control high blood sugar and prevent the risk of kidney problems, heart disease, blindness, impotency and stroke. It stimulates the release of natural insulin in the body, which lowers the level of blood sugar.

Adiaben is a prescribed medication distributed under the brand names Orinase, Diabinese, and Tolinase. Adiaben is sold under several generic names such as Acetohexamide, Tolbutamide and Tolazamide. It is a medication used by patients who have type II diabetes.

Adiaben is taken orally, usually once a day after breakfast or as prescribed by the doctor. The dosage may vary depending on the medical condition and the response of the patient to the therapy sessions. It is best to take the medicine at the same time regularly in order to get its full benefit. Avoid using it more than what is prescribed to avoid overdose.

Patients using Adiaben may experience side effects such as diarrhea, weight gain, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite. These are only minor side effects but it is still important to inform your doctor about these.

There are also rare cases of serious side effects that include unusual fatigue, irregular heartbeat, mood changes, weakness of the muscles, dark color stool, swelling of feet or hands, muscle weakness, vomiting, yellowish skin and eyes and stomach pains. The patient should be brought to a hospital if any of these serious side effects occur.

Taking Adiaben can cause hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. This side effect may be experienced by patients who do not intake enough calories. It is advisable to always bring some glucose tablets to raise the blood sugar if necessary. You may also use substitutes such as orange juice, candy, honey and sugar.

It is essential to closely monitor your blood sugar if you are using Adiaben.

If you need to use Adiaben, you must inform your doctor if you have any allergies to this or similar medications. You must also tell your doctor if you have other medical conditions such as kidney problems, heart problems, thyroid problems, liver problem, poor diet or mineral imbalance.

The medication affects your vision and can cause drowsiness so it is advised not to engage in activities that requires normal alertness such as operating machines, driving and other extreme activities.

Patients who are taking this medication should avoid alcoholic drinks because it increases the risk of having hypoglycemia. Alcohol also interacts with the medication and can cause discomfort and unwanted side effects such as stomach pain, nausea, facial flushing and dizziness.
