Amaryl 2 mg
A healthcare provider may prescribe 2 mg of Amaryl® (glimepiride) once daily to treat type 2 diabetes. However, your exact 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.
Make sure to take Amaryl at the same time every day with the first main meal of your day (typically breakfast). If you do not take this medication as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
