Applies to:insulin and Oseni (alogliptin/pioglitazone)

Alogliptin may help control blood glucose levels, which may lead to a reduction in your dosage requirement of insulin or any other diabetic medications you are receiving. Your blood glucose should be closely monitored so that medications may be adjusted accordingly by your doctor. Let your doctor know if you experience hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nervousness, weakness, tremor, nausea, hunger, sweating, and palpitation. Likewise, if alogliptin is discontinued, your blood glucose may increase and hyperglycemia may occur, which may require readjustment of your medications.
