Amaryl Drug Information

As a prescription medication, Amaryl® (glimepiride) is approved for treating type 2 diabetes (also known as noninsulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes). However, because not everyone can take this medication, it is important to review Amaryl's safety information before starting treatment.
 
For example, you may not be able to take Amaryl if you have certain medical conditions, such as kidney problems, liver problems, or certain allergies. Also, you may not be able to safely use this drug if you are currently taking certain medications, including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and nonprescription medications.
 
Although most people do not experience problems with this medication, Amaryl can cause side effects. Some of the commonly reported side effects include headaches, dizziness, and weakness. If problems occur, they are usually minor and easily treated.
