Dosage Information for MicronaseThe dosage of Micronase that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- How well your diabetes is controlled
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are currently taking.
Glynase Versus MicronaseMicronase contains regular, unmicronized glyburide. Glynase® contains micronized glyburide (glyburide that is made into very small particles that are better absorbed into the body). Micronase and Glynase are not interchangeable, and they are not available in the same strengths.
Side Effects of MicronaseAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Micronase. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Micronase quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
- Stomach problems, such as nausea or heartburn
- Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
- Allergic skin reactions, including itching and hives.
