Glimepiride is the non-proprietary name for a medication predominantly used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is rarely the first-line choice for type 2 diabetes, but it is a widely-used medication with tens of millions of users around the world.

A sulfonylurea drug, patients with a history of hypersensitivity to sulfa medications may not want to buy Glimepiride. It can be used in children, but is rarely recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.

Glimepiride can be used on its own or along with other antidiabetic treatments, such as metformin or insulin. Diet and exercise modifications will be advised when the medication is prescribed, and patients are strongly encouraged to try to comply with them.

The medication works by stimulating insulin secretion by the pancreas; as the pancreas is unable to produce insulin in type 1 diabetes, it will provide no benefit.

The Importance of Lifestyle Changes

In causing the pancreas to produce more insulin, blood sugar is effectively lowered. Diet and exercise can also greatly influence blood sugar---in most cases diet and exercise are the only way to reduce or eliminate dependency on medications---and should not be radically changed while taking Glimepiride without consulting a doctor and frequently checking blood sugar levels.

Patients will be given individualized dietary and exercise modification guidelines when Glimepiride is prescribed, taking into account numerous personal factors. All patients are encouraged to see a doctor prior to buying Glimepiride for this reason, and encouraged to comply with the recommended guidelines to as great an extent as possible.

Those who are disinclined to make dietary or exercise changes are poor candidates for treatment with this medication; other treatments are more suitable. Patients unable to make significant dietary or exercise changes, or those rare few who have made them but experience little improvement in type 2 diabetes, should carefully discuss the issue with a doctor before starting treatment.

Assuming dietary and exercise modifications are complied with, Glimepiride can significantly help manage blood sugar levels. This helps reduce progression of type 2 diabetes, which, if allowed to progress, can be severe, permanent, and eventually fatal. Whether patients buy Glimepiride or some other treatment, addressing diabetes is very important.

Taking Glimepiride

Glimepiride is administered as tablets, ranging in strength from 1 mg, 2 mg, 3 mg, 4 mg, and 8 mg. It is usually taken with a meal and a full glass of fluid.

Treatment will be individualized according to each patient's needs. On average, treatment is typically:

  • Start with 1 or 2 mg taken once per day, usually in the morning with breakfast.
  • After one or two weeks, dosage may be increased if needed.
  • Do not exceed 8 mg per day.
  • Doctors sometimes advise doses above 4 mg be divided into multiple daily doses.
  • Blood sugar must be checked frequently when treatment begins or dosage modifications are made.

Low blood sugar, called hypoglycemia, is a real risk when treatment with Glimepiride begins, when dosage modifications are made, or when radical diet changes are made. Consuming a fast-acting source of sugar, such as fruit juice or glucose tablets, can help resolve the immediate issue. Patients may be prescribed a glucagon injection kit as well. Speak with a doctor if hypoglycemia occurs; dosage modifications may be needed.

Treatment with Glimepiride can continue for as long as it provides benefit and no serious adverse effects develop. While many patients do buy Glimepiride for years on end, there is some controversy regarding such long-term use and pancreatic damage.

Potential Side Effects

Most patients take Glimepiride with no side effects, or only minimal side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Mild dizziness
  • Diarrhea

Side effects that warrant speaking with a doctor include:

  • Severe gastrointestinal pain
  • Severe itching
  • Chest pain
  • Severe hypoglycemia
  • Allergic reaction symptoms

The medication can cause a range of other adverse reactions not typically detectable by the patient, which include:

  • Low red blood cells
  • Low white blood cells
  • Low blood platelets
  • Altered kidney or liver enzymes
  • Low sodium
  • Lowered immunity
  • Impaired bile flow

If mild the above are not particularly concerning; if allowed to progress to severe, the above can be dangerous. Doctors should screen for the above periodically, and doctors should be informed that Glimepiride is being taken prior to any laboratory tests unrelated to monitoring side effects.

Drug Interactions

Glimepiride can interact with a wide range of other medications, including other antidiabetic medications; the prescribing doctor should be made aware of all other medications being taken, as well as when new medications are added. Sometimes interactions are minimal and considered worthwhile, other times one of the medications must cease.

This includes all drugs, including over-the-counter varieties and recreational drugs, like alcohol or cocaine. Alcohol in particular can be dangerous for Glimepiride users, as it can significantly increase risk of hypoglycemia. Use with caution until effects are known, and never use to excess.
