Amaryl® (glimepiride) is a prescription medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, if you experience bothersome side effects, or if the medication is not adequately controlling your condition, several alternatives to this medication are available.
Some of these Amaryl substitutes include:
- Other oral diabetes medications
- Lifestyle changes
- Insulin and other injectable diabetes medications.
In many cases, lifestyle changes have been shown to be very effective for controlling type 2 diabetes, especially early cases. These lifestyle changes include weight loss, more physical activity, and changes in diet.
