Glynase

Dosage Information

The dosage of Glynase your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • How well your diabetes is controlled
  • Other medical conditions you have
  • Other medications you are currently taking.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Glynase Versus DiaBeta

DiaBeta® contains regular, unmicronized glyburide. Glynase contains micronized glyburide (glyburide that is made into very small particles that are better absorbed into the body). DiaBeta and Glynase are not interchangeable, and they are not available in the same strengths.
 

Side Effects of Glynase

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Glynase. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
 
The most common side effects seen with Glynase include:
 
  • Stomach problems, such as nausea or heartburn
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Allergic skin reactions, including itching and hives.
