Your dose for Glipizide 60mg sounds too high. Even 30 mg as a starting dose is high.
The typical initial dose is 5 mg orally once daily before breakfast; titration, 2.5- to 5-mg increments; allow several days between titration steps; MAX 40 mg daily (doses above 15 mg should be divided)

It should not be causing joint and muscle pain as that is not a common side effect of Glipizide. I would try lower dose as recommended and check your blood sugar levels to ensure they are within normal range.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
