Glipizide ER and IR

Wondering if anyone out there has taken both Glipizide ER and IR in the same day. I'm trying to improve my dawn effect spike; I would like to take the IR before breakfast (I would have to take the ER in the middle of the night to be effective) and ER after to control sugar throughout the day. If I could control the dawn effect spike I could get my A1C close to 6.

  1. Hi . For your safety, please don't take both on the same day without talking to your doctor first. Here is an article with some tips for managing high morning blood sugar levels that you might find helpful: Best wishes. - Lori (Team Member)

    1. Hi there, thanks for taking the time to post your question here! First, you should know that we are unable to provide medical advice. However, I can link you to an article that I found very interesting and right on topic. The author discussed using ER and IR and how her blood sugars trend with each. I would suggest checking with your doctor before making any changes to your medications. All the best, Lauren (team member)
