Glioptim Tablets 3mg 2×10’s
Glioptim Tablets 3mg 2×10’s is a medicine used to treat diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the body doesn’t make enough insulin, or the insulin that it makes doesn’t work properly. This can cause high blood sugar levels.
The starting dose is 1 mg taken once per day with breakfast or the first main meal of the day. Your dose of glimepiride may be adjusted based on your blood sugar levels. There may be an interaction between glimepiride and inhibitors and inducers of cytochrome. Fluconazole may inhibit the metabolism of glimepiride, causing increased plasma concentrations of glimepiride which may lead to hypoglycemia. Conclusions: Glimepiride is equally effective whether administered once or twice daily. Glimepiride seems to stimulate insulin production primarily after meals when plasma glucose concentrations are highest but control blood glucose throughout the day.
Glimepiride takes up to three hours for maximum effect and lasts for about a day. Common side effects include headache, nausea, and dizziness. Serious side effects may include low blood sugar. Use during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended. If you skip your largest meal of the day when you normally take your medication, then it is recommended that you also skip Amaryl. Having an empty stomach and taking the medication can cause your blood sugar to become too low. Weight gain is considered to be a disadvantage of sulphonylurea therapy; however, previous studies suggest that glimepiride has a weight-neutral effect on patients with diabetes
