Dosage

Daily dose may vary from 30 to 120 mg taken orally in a single intake at breakfast time.

If a dose is forgotten, there must be no increase in the dose taken the next day.

As with any hypoglycemic agent, the dose should be adjusted according to patient metabolic responses (e.g. blood glucose, HbA1c).

Initial dose
The recommended starting dose of gliclazide is 30 mg daily. If blood glucose is effectively controlled, this dose may be used for maintenance treatment.

However, if the blood glucose is not adequately controlled, the dose may be increased to 60, 90, or 120 mg daily, in successive steps. The interval between each dose increment should be at least 1 month, except in patients whose blood glucose has not reduced after two weeks of treatment. In this case, an increase of the dose may be suggested at the end of the second week of treatment.

The maximum recommended daily dose is 120 mg. The breakability of the FONYLIN MR sustained release tablet enables flexibility of dosing to be achieved.
