Amaryl tablets contain the generic ingredient glimepiride, which is a type of medicine called a sulphonylurea. Amaryl is used to help control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
In addition to proper diet, exercise and weight reduction, doctors prescribe Amaryl to control blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. Amaryl can be used alone or in combination with other drugs.
Amaryl works by stimulating the beta cells in the pancreas to produce more insulin, which removes the sugar from the blood. Amaryl also works by decreasing the amount of sugar that the liver produces and by increasing the uptake of sugar by the muscle and fat cells.
Usually, Amaryl is taken orally once daily, with breakfast or the first main meal of the day. Amaryl tablets must be swallowed whole without chewing with about a half glass of liquid. Your doctor will prescribe for you how much to take and how often. It is important that you follow your doctor’s instructions carefully.
These may not be all the side effects of Amaryl 1mg.
Do not use this medication if you have type 1 diabetes or if you have an emergency condition with high blood glucose levels called diabetic ketoacidosis.
Before you use Amaryl, talk to your doctor if you have problems with your kidneys, liver, heart or a blood disease called G6PD-deficiency anemia. It is important to wear a medical identification bracelet or neck chain at all times. Also, carry an identification card in your wallet or purse that says you have diabetes and a list of your medicines. You may have low blood sugar while taking Amaryl, especially if you miss a meal or exercise for a long time.
Store the tablets at room temperature (15°C to 30°C), away from heat, moisture, and direct light. As with all medicines, keep this product out of the reach of children. Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine that is no longer needed.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body cannot properly use the insulin that is produced (called insulin resistance) or does not make enough insulin. As a result, sugar or glucose builds up in the blood instead of being used as energy. Over time, people who have high blood sugar can develop serious or potentially life-threatening complications, including heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, eye problems or kidney problems. As the disease progresses, symptoms may include blurred sight, numbness in the hands and feet, itchy skin, frequent bladder and vaginal infections, frequent need to urinate, increased thirst and hunger and slow healing of cuts or sores. About 90 percent of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes and it often develops in adults. With the rise in childhood obesity, the incidence of type 2 diabetes is increasing in children. Although some people are thin, the majority of people with this condition are overweight. Losing weight, even 10 lbs, can help lower blood glucose levels. Depending on the severity of your condition, type 2 diabetes may be managed through physical activity and meal planning, or may also require medications to control blood sugar more effectively. There are several types of oral diabetes medications (oral hypoglycemics), which work to lower blood glucose, including sulfonylureas.
Amaryl 1mg is part of the group of medicines called sulfonylureas, which help to lower blood sugar.
