Glipizide 10 mg po daily

Facilitator/Professor help:

INFORMATION AS SHORT PARAGRAPHS, READABLE. All information & presentation have to be at advanced clinician level.


1. Discuss pharmacology of existing agents briefly, molecular mechanism of action, therapeutic & adverse effects, & relevant kinetics, all as short paragraphs, readable.


2. Talk about what modifications are needed, what drugs are not at the best interest.


3. Follow a guideline, preferably JNC 8 and its current modifications (also ACC/AHA 2019 guidelines).


4. Talk about the drugs you have substituted or added, & their key pharmacology.


5. Address any specific questions that you are asked for in this case.

Example, here are some questions you may want to address in your assignment:


Does this patient need both verapamil & atenolol at the same time, since both have similar actions?


Recent guidelines do not recommend beta blockers for hypertension. But it was possibly added for the best therapeutic outcome? Why beta blockers? (example, he had strokes?).


Is there a drug to be added for stroke prevention?


What are the major adverse effects of Statins (muscle related), Hydralazine (many, lupus like syndrome), glipizide (hypoglycemia) HCTZ (hypokalemia) etc.


Why can’t this patient be a candidate for metformin, the best used diabetes drug, efficacious, no hypoglycemic attacks etc.?
