Be sure to take glipizide 30 minutes before meals.”

The client should take glipizide twice a day, 30 minutes before a meal, because food decreases its absorption. The drug doesnt cause hyponatremia and therefore doesnt necessitate monthly serum sodium measurement. The client must continue to monitor the blood glucose level during glipizide therapy.
