Amaryl Side Effects

Rare Side Effects

Rare side effects occur in 1 percent or less of people taking Amaryl. Because these reactions are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are caused by the medication or something else.
 
Some of these rare Amaryl side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Diarrhea
  • Hepatitis
  • Anemia
  • Low sodium in the blood (hyponatremia)
  • Blurred vision
  • A reaction with alcohol that causes stomach upset, vomiting, shakiness, sweating, and stomach cramps.
     
Oral diabetes medicines, including Amaryl, may increase the risk of death due to heart or blood vessel problems, compared to diabetes treatments using diet or insulin. This warning is based on one research study that looked at a medication similar to Amaryl. However, it is unclear at this time how important this risk may be in people taking Amaryl.

Final Thoughts on Amaryl Side Effects

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Amaryl. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
