COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020
Covid-19 Service Update

At Universal Drugstore, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting us all, there have been some changes within our industry in general, and in our company specifically, that we want to make our customers aware of.

Call Center

Our call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm on Monday to Friday, and 7:00 am – 7:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

Shipping

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still delays occurring. Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may take an additional 2 – 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These are industry-wide delays and are mainly occurring due to disruptions in local postal delivery in the countries where our customers live. They are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: We are now resuming our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our Commitment

If you have any questions about any changes in our service please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure the timely fulfillment and delivery of all orders. The health of our customers and staff is our highest priority and we remain committed to providing service at the highest level.

We thank you for your support in these challenging times.

Full information about Glucotrol

General Information on Glucotrol

Glucotrol is the trade name for Glipizide, an oral anti-diabetic drug belonging to the sulfonylurea class. Glipizide is considered to be a second generation sulfonylurea because it goes through enterohepatic circulation. Glucotrol helps in controlling blood sugar levels in the human body. It is normally prescribed along with appropriate exercises and a controlled diet to treat type 2 diabetes.

Glucotrol is prescribed to those patients who have high blood sugar levels and become resistant to insulin. The pancreas in type 2 diabetes patients cannot produce the necessary amount of insulin in order to overcome this resistance. Hence, Glucotrol is prescribed as it is able to reduce blood glucose by helping the pancreas to produce a higher amount of insulin. You can buy Glucotrol only if it has been prescribed. You must keep in mind that this medication is not a cure for type 2 diabetes.

Side effects of Glucotrol

Oral intake of Glucotrol can lead to minor side effects but in some cases the side effects can be quite severe. One of the most commonly seen side effects is low blood sugar, or Hypoglycemia. The best way to identify this condition is through the symptoms. The symptoms include nausea, mild to severe headache, confusion, hunger, weakness, drowsiness, blurred vision leading to dizziness, faster heartbeat, tremors and sweating, trouble focusing, and even convulsions or seizure. If you see any of these symptoms, you must inform your doctor.

Administration of Glucotrol can affect different systems within the human body. It causes gastrointestinal disturbances and incidences of nausea followed by diarrhea, gastralgia, constipation and even Cholestatic jaundice has been noticed. These disturbances are greatly reduced by lowering the dosage.

Side effects of Glucotrol can give rise to Hematologic conditions like aplastic anemia, agranulocytosis, pancytopenia, Leukopenia, hemolytic anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Intake of Glipizide also causes reactions in the metabolic system leading to Hepatic porphyria.

Skin reactions and endocrine reactions have also been quite common in patients being administered Glucotrol. Skin reactions include morbilliform, eczema, erythema, maculopapular eruptions, pruritus, and urticaria. Most doctors would discontinue the drug if such allergic reactions are reported.

Precautions

The intake of Glucotrol increases the risk of cardiovascular mortality and renal as well as hepatic disease. Most medical professionals suggest changes in the dosage if a patient shows symptoms of hypoglycemia. The most important precaution should be taken in the form of the diet and this should also be the primary treatment and not Glucotrol. A diet chart should be prepared and followed. Apart from the diet, you need to also focus on regular physical activity to lower cardiovascular risk. Pregnant women are risk prone to Glucotrol as it has proven to be fetotoxic in laboratory tests. The risk is there for an infant and hence nursing mothers are mostly warned against taking Glipizide as it can be excreted through human milk.

Glucotrol Dosage

You can buy Glucotrol in the following forms- Glucotrol 5mg and Glucotrol 10mg immediate release tablets, but you cannot buy it over the counter. The recommended dosage is Glucotrol 5mg that has to be taken 30 minutes before every meal. The maximum dosage that can be administered is Glucotrol 40mg daily although most patients will never be prescribed more than 20mg a day.

Interactions

There are certain drugs that Glucotrol interacts with to cause adverse reactions, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, corticosteroids, sulfonamides, sympathomimetics, salicylates, and oral miconazole among others.
