Unlike sulfonylureas or insulin, an overdose of GLYSET tablets will not result in hypoglycemia. An overdose may result in transient increases in flatulence, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort. Because of the lack of extra-intestinal effects seen with GLYSET, no serious systemic reactions are expected in the event of an overdose.
GLYSET Tablets are contraindicated in patients with:
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
- Inflammatory bowel disease, colonic ulceration, or partial intestinal obstruction, and in patients predisposed to intestinal obstruction
- Chronic intestinal diseases associated with marked disorders of digestion or absorption, or with conditions that may deteriorate as a result of increased gas formation in the intestine
- Hypersensitivity to the drug or any of its components.
