Acarbose - Overview

Acarbose, marketed under the brand name Precose, is a medication used to help regulate glycemic levels in adults with diabetes. People who need an acarbose medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe acarbose tablets when appropriate to do so.

Acarbose - Mechanism of Action

Acarbose belongs to a class of medications known as alpha-glucosidase inhibitors and is considered an oligosaccharide. As this type of medication, acarbose is thought to work by reducing the blood glucose spikes after meals by slowing the digestion of carbohydrates in the diet. Marketed under the brand name Prescose, acarbose may help improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus as an adjunct to diet and exercise. Acarbose has no effect on the secretion of insulin and effects from the use of acarbose are often observed in hemoglobin A1c blood levels. Acarbose is sometimes used in conjunction with metformin as their mechanism of actions are thought to be complementary.

Acarbose - Dosage and Price

While acarbose is typically prescribed to be taken three times per day, the actual acarbose dosing regimen used is highly dependent on the health characteristics of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. When prescribed, acarbose tablets are typically available as acarbose 25 mg tablets, acarbose 50 mg tablets and acarbose 100 mg tablets. Plasma levels of acarbose typically peak within one day after oral administration. The majority of acarbose in the body is excreted in the feces although a small percentage is also excreted in the urine. Acarbose is relatively inexpensive, costing approximately 30 cents per acarbose 25 mg tablet at most pharmacies. Acarbose coupons are also available online at times. Also, some insurance plans may help with costs associated with an acarbose prescription, depending on the insurance plan and the reason the medication was prescribed.
