BRAND NAME :  Amaryl
CHEMICAL CONTENTS:  Glimepiride

Brand Name

Amaryl

Amaryl Uses:

Amaryl is an oral medication used to treat type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes when diet and exercise alone fail to control abnormally high levels of blood sugar. Like other diabetes drugs classified as sulfonylureas, Amaryl lowers blood sugar by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin. Amaryl is often prescribed along with the insulin-boosting drug Glucophage . It may also be used in conjunction with insulin and other diabetes drugs.

Amaryl Dosage:

Adults : the usual starting dose is 1 to 2 mg taken once daily with breakfast or the first main meal. The maximum starting dose is 2 mg. If necessary, your doctor will gradually increase the dose 1 or 2 mg at a time every 1 or 2 weeks. Your diabetes will probably be controlled on 1 to 4 mg a day; the most you should take in a day is 8 mg. If the maximum dose fails to do the job, your doctor may add Glucophage to your regimen. Weakened or malnourished people and those with adrenal, pituitary, kidney, or liver disorders are particularly sensitive to hypoglycemic drugs such as Amaryl and should start at 1 mg once daily. Your doctor will increase your medication based on your response to the drug.

Amaryl Contraindications :

Avoid Amaryl if you have ever had an allergic reaction to it. Do not take Amaryl to correct diabetic ketoacidosis (a life-threatening medical emergency caused by insufficient insulin and marked by excessive thirst, nausea, fatigue, and fruity breath). This condition should be treated with insulin.

Amaryl Side Effects:

Amaryl, like all oral antidiabetics, can result in hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). The risk of hypoglycemia can be increased by missed meals, alcohol, fever, injury, infection, surgery, excessive exercise, and the addition of other medications such as Glucophage or insulin. To avoid hypoglycemia, closely follow the dietary and exercise regimen suggested by your doctor.

Amaryl Overdose:

An overdose of Amaryl can cause low blood sugar (see "What side effects may occur?" for symptoms). Eating sugar or a sugar-based product will often correct mild hypoglycemia. For severe hypoglycemia, seek medical attention immediately.

Amaryl Missed dose:

Take Amaryl as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time.

Amaryl Storage:

Amaryl should be stored at room temperature in a well-closed container.
