For instance, to help avoid possible complications, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical condition you may have and any other medications you are taking (including nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements).
 
Other dangers with Amaryl can include side effects, such as:
 
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Headaches
  • Upset stomach (nausea).
     
Other safety concerns with Amaryl apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies (including to foods, dyes, or preservatives). Also, you may not be able to take this drug if you have certain medical conditions, such as kidney or liver problems.
