Product Description:

General information
Amaryl belongs to a group of medications known as oral hypoglycemics. It is used to control blood sugar for people with type 2 diabetes. It is used when diet, exercise, and weight reduction have not been found to control blood sugar well enough on their own. Glimepiride increases the amount of insulin released by the pancreas and helps the body use insulin more efficiently. It may be used in combination with metformin or insulin when diet and exercise and the use of these medications on their own do not provide adequate control of blood sugar.
Take Amaryl exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The usual starting dose is 1 mg once daily to be taken with breakfast or the first main meal. After reaching a dose of 2 mg, further increases should be done in increments of no more than 1 mg at one-week to 2-week intervals. The usual maintenance adult dose ranges from 1 mg to 4 mg once daily to be taken with breakfast or the first main meal of the day. The maximum daily dose is 8 mg.
Before taking Amaryl you should talk with your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, cirrhosis, adrenal insufficiency or adrenal fatigue, pituitary gland problems, glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, mineral imbalance (hyponatremia), any allergies. You may experience blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness. Limit alcohol while taking this medication because it can increase the risk of developing hypoglycemia. During times of stress, such as fever, infection, injury or surgery, it may be more difficult to control your blood sugar.
Do not take Amaryl if you are allergic to glimepiride or any ingredients of the medication, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes), or diabetic ketoacidosis.
