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