What is tolazamide?

Tolazamide, also known by the brand name Tolinase, is an antidiabetic sulfonylurea medication that brings down high blood sugar levels. It stimulates release of insulin from the pancreas; the insulin then works to lower your blood sugar. Tolazamide is available in a tablet form. It is used for type 2 diabetes. It is not a substitute for a proper diet, just a supplement for those with hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) who cannot control their blood sugar through diet and exercise.
