IndicationDrugContraindications, side effects and note
T1DM (long acting) Hypoglycemia, onset: 4hr, peak: none, lasts: 18h
PCOS (hirsutism, by blocking T to DHT conversion)Impotence
T1DM and T2DMWeight gain, hypoglycemia
Hypoaldosteronism, chronic adrenal insufficiencyHypokalemic alkalosis
T2DM (by activating AMPPK)Lactic acidosis, anorexia, nausea, flatulence, diarrhea
Hyperthyroidism (less potent, does not cross placenta)Cold dry skin, decreased pulse pressure, bradycardia, decreased appetite, fatigue, fever, rashes, jaundice, hepatitis, agranulocytosis
Paget's disease, hyperparathyroidism, idiopathic juvenile hypercalcemia, vitamin D toxicosis, osteoporosisHypocalcemia, kidney stones
HyperthyroidismDelayed hypothyroidism
Osteoporosis, osteomalacia, rickets, hypoparathyroidismHypercalcemia, particularly dangerous in patients taking digoxin
T1DM (intermediate acting) Hypoglycemia, onset: 30 min, peak: 2h, lasts: 8h
T2DM (by inhibiting carb absorption)Flatulence, diarrhea
Hyperthyroidism (more potent, crosses placenta)Cold dry skin, decreased pulse pressure, bradycardia, decreased appetite, fatigue, fever, rashes, jaundice, hepatitis, agranulocytosis
PCOS (hirsutism, by inhibiting binding of testosterone)Mild liver injury, GI
Hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcemiaInhibit PTH synthesis at lower concentrations of calcium
T2DM (by increasing insulin release)Expensive, by injection, also decreases appetite, gastric motility
Myxedema coma, preparing for iodine therapyWarm moist skin, increased CO and pulse pressure, increased appetite, weakness
Obesity (against appetite)Depression, anxiety, nausea
PCOS (hirsutism, by inhibiting binding of testosterone)Liver toxicity, gynecomastia, erectile dysfunction
Hyperaldosteronism (Conn's syndrome)Hyperkalemia
T1DM (short acting) Hypoglycemia, onset: 15 min, peak: 1h, lasts: 4h
IndicationDrugContraindications, side effects and note
Anything (adrenal crisis, chronic adrenal insufficiency)Cushingoid syndrome, edema, hypokalemic alkalosis, myopathy, induced ACTH insufficiency, reduced intestinal absorption of calcium
Cortisol suppression tests, psoriasis, eczemaThinning skin
Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidismHypothyroidism (via Wolff-Chaikoff effect) or hyperthyroidism, hyperthyroidism if used for >8 weeks (Jod Basedow phenomenon)
T2DM (by blocking ATP-sensitive K channel)Weight gain, hypoglycemia, nausea, vomiting, alcohol-induced flushing
Paget's diseaseA cytotoxic antibiotic
HypoglycemiaSubcutaneous injection, can cause hyperglycemia
Osteoporosis (for increasing bone mass)Very expensive
Obesity (against fat absorption)Steatorrhea
Obesity (against appetite)Increased heart rate, hypertension, sympathetic activation (dry mouth, constipation, nausea)
T2DM (by blocking PPAR in adipocytes)Weight gain, possible liver disease and cardiac failure, bladder cancer
PCOS (hirsutism)Hyperkalemia
Precocious pubertyHeadache, depression, insomnia, nausea and vomiting
T1DM (long acting) Hypoglycemia, onset: 1hr, peak: 6h, lasts: 18h
T2DM (by blocking ATP-sensitive K channel, weakly)Weight gain, hypoglycemia, nausea, vomiting
HypothyroidismWarm moist skin, increased CO and pulse pressure, increased appetite, weakness
Paget's disease, osteoporosis, hypercalcemia of malignancyGastric irritation (abdo pain, diarrhea, loss of taste), bone pain, headache, rash
Kidney stones, idiopathic hypercalciuriaHypercalcemia
T2DM (by reducing incretin degradation)Oral administration, decreases appetite with less effect
PCOS (for increasing fertility, via blocking estrogen inhibition of hypothalamus)Vasomotor flushing, visual blurring, ovary enlargement
