Amaryl 4 mg
When treating type 2 diabetes, a healthcare provider may prescribe 4 mg of Amaryl® (glimepiride) once daily. If necessary, he or she may increase your dosage by 2 mg or less every one to two weeks, up to a maximum of 8 mg daily.
However, the exact dose you are prescribed will depend on several factors, including:
- Your age
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are currently taking.
Amaryl should be taken with the first main meal of the day, typically breakfast. Also, make sure to take your dose at the same time every day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
