Zolid 15mg+500mg tablet is an oral antidiabetic agent combination i.e. Pioglitazone HCL and Metformin HCL used in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus that acts primarily by decreasing insulin resistance. Pioglitazone decreases insulin resistance in the periphery and in the liver resulting in increased insulin-dependent glucose disposal and decreased hepatic glucose output.

USES:

Zolid 15mg+500mg is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus as;

  • Monotherapy
  • In patients (particularly overweight patients) inadequately controlled by diet and exercise for whom metformin is inappropriate because of contraindications or intolerance.
  • Dual oral therapy in combination with:
  • Metformin, in patients (particularly overweight patients) with insufficient glycaemic control despite maximal tolerated dose of monotherapy with metformin.
  • Sulphonylurea, only in patients who show in tolerance to metformin or for whom metformin is contraindicated, with insufficient glycaemic control despite maximal tolerated dose of monotherapy with a sulphonylurea.
  • Triple oral therapy in combination with:
  • Metformin and a sulphonylurea, in patients (particularly overweight patients) with insufficient glycaemic control despite dual oral therapy.

Pioglitazone is also indicated for combination with insulin in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with insufficient glycemic control on insulin for whom metformin is inappropriate because of contraindications or intolerance.

PRECUATIONS:

INTERACTIONS:

Zolid 15mg+500mg have following interactions:

  • Administration of ZOLID for 15 days followed by a single 7.5 mg dose of midazolam sy rup resulted in a 26% reduction in midazolam Cmax and AUC.
  • When piogl itazone is given with gemfibrozil, an inhibitor of cytochrome P450 isoenzyme CYP2C8, there is a threefold increase in the area under the concentration –time curve (AUC) of pioglitazone , and a decrease in pioglitazone dose may be needed if it is given with gemfibrozil or similar CYP2C8.
  • Pioglitazone dose may need to be increased when rifampicin, a potent inducer of cytochrome P450, is given with pioglitazone, as it halves the AUC of pioglitazone.
