Amaryl Type 2 Diabetes Medicine
If you have type 2 diabetes, Amaryl® (glimepiride) is a medicine that your healthcare provider may recommend. This prescription medication is approved for treating this form of diabetes either by itself or in combination with insulin.
As a sulfonylurea medicine, Amaryl works to treat type 2 diabetes by helping the pancreas to produce more insulin. It also helps the body's cells respond better to insulin, which results in a decrease in blood sugar levels.
Amaryl comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken once a day. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Potential side effects include headaches, dizziness, and weakness.
