What is glimepiride?

Glimepiride is a prescription drug. It comes as an oral tablet. Glimepiride is available as the brand-name drug Amaryl and as a generic drug. Generic drugs usually cost less. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name version. This drug may be used as part of a combination therapy. That means you need to take it with other drugs.

Uses of Glimepiride

  • Type II Diabetes Mellitus

Glimepiride is used to control blood sugar levels in adults with Type II Diabetes Mellitus. The medicine is generally taken in conjunction with controlled diet and regular exercise.

How it works

Glimepiride belongs to a class of drugs called sulfonylureas. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

Glimepiride helps your pancreas to release insulin. Insulin is a chemical that your body makes to move sugar (glucose) from your bloodstream into your cells. Once the sugar enters your cells, they can use it as fuel for your body.

With type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make enough insulin, or it can't properly use the insulin that it makes, so the sugar stays in your bloodstream. This causes high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia).
