Amaryl 1 mg
Amaryl® (glimepiride) is a medicine commonly used to treat type 2 diabetes. The recommended starting dosage is Amaryl 1 mg or 2 mg once a day. However, your specific dosage will depend on several factors, such as:
- Your age
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are currently taking.
If necessary, your healthcare provider may slowly increase your dose of Amaryl by 2 mg or less every one to two weeks, up to a maximum of 8 mg daily.
Amaryl should be taken at the same time every day with breakfast. If you do not eat breakfast regularly, you should take this drug with the first main meal of your day.
