Gliburide

Were you looking for information on Glyburide? Gliburide is a common misspelling of glyburide.
 
Glyburide (DiaBeta®, Glynase®, or Micronase®) is prescribed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes to help lower blood sugar levels. It causes the pancreas to produce more insulin and improves the body's response to insulin. As a result, blood sugar levels decrease. The medication comes in tablet form, and is typically taken once or twice a day with meals. Indications of a glyburide overdose include shakiness, a fast heartbeat, or confusion.
