Glyburide Diabetic Drug Information

Glyburide (DiaBeta®, Glynase®, Micronase®) is a medicine prescribed to help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It causes the pancreas to produce more insulin and improves the body's response to insulin. As a result, blood sugar levels decrease. The drug comes in tablet form, and is typically taken once or twice a day.
