Why Is Avandia Supplied as Tiltab Tablets?

Avandia is the brand name of rosiglitazone, a medication used to lower the high blood sugar associated with type 2 diabetes. It is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

Each pentagonal, film coated Tiltab® tablet is debossed with “SB” or “GSK” on one side and numbers on the other. Tiltab tablets are specially shaped to make them easier to pick up. The most stable position on a horizontal flat surface is a tilted position for easy picking, showing potential benefit to tackle dexterity issues and increase patient compliance.

Tiltab® is the registered trademark of GlaxoSmithKline. Other than Avandia, Tiltab® technology is also used on other medications, such as Coreg (carvedilol) and Doralese (indoramin).  (Doralese is a United Kingdom pharmacy product). 


Branded Avandia was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999. Generic Avandia To Treat Type 2 Diabetes is Now Available from Canada. Generic rosiglitazone from certified Canadian mail order pharmacies is also supplied as pentagonal tablets, easy to pick up by those with impaired dexterity.  Additionally, because rosiglitazone is a generic from Canada, this prescription product from our Canadian online pharmacy sponsor is much cheaper medication option compared to the brand name Avandia (rosiglitazone).
