What is Glimepiride (generic Amaryl) and what are its uses?

Amaryl (Glimepiride) helps to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Treatment is combined with a suitable diet and balanced exercise.

Amaryl increases the amount of insulin released from the pancreas and helps your body to use insulin more efficiently.

Amaryl may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

How does Glimepiride (generic Amaryl) treat?

In patients with diabetes mellitus, there is a deficiency or absence of a hormone manufactured by the pancreas called insulin. Insulin is the main hormone responsible for the control of sugar in the blood.

Amaryl (Glimepiride) is an antidiabetic medication, which is used in those patients with adult maturity onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM). Amaryl works by lowering blood sugar levels by stimulating the production and release of insulin from the pancreas. Amaryl also promotes the movement of sugar from the blood into the cells in the body, which need it.

These two mechanisms in conjunction with a diet low in sugar and fat allows diabetics to control their blood sugar levels more effectively. 

Dosage: How should you take Glimepiride (generic Amaryl)?

Take Amaryl tablets orally.

Swallow Amaryl tablets with a drink of water.

Take your Amaryl dose at the same time each day, with breakfast or your first large meal; do not take more often than directed.
