    What is Amaryl prescribed for?

    Amaryl is a prescribed medicine for treating type 2 diabetes.

    It lowers the levels of blood sugar and odds of developing severe diabetes complications. These include diabetic neuropathy, nephropathy or retinopathy and heart disease. Available in a tablet form, Amaryl should be combined with other medicines for curing type 2 diabetes, exercise and diet to produce excellent results.

    Also called glimepiride, Amaryl is not a cure for type I diabetes. Amaryl is a sulfonylureas and so it assists the pancreas to produce extra insulin. In addition, Amaryl allows the patient’s body cells to react better to insulin, causing a decrease in sugar levels.

    Dosage

    The correct dosage for you will be directed by your doctor based on your age, other diseases or disorders you live with and other medicines you are taking. So, it is necessary to take Amaryl just as requested by your health expert. It is a tablet that is normally taken orally once per day.

    Take Amaryl with your breakfast every day, preferably, or with your main meal if you normally skip breakfast.

    The initial dose of Amaryl is 1mg or 2mg once per day. The smaller dose of 1mg is suitable for seniors or people suffering from renal failure. The first dose can be increased if it is well tolerated. The allowed increments are of 1mg to 2mg depending on your glycemic reaction. Furthermore, a dose should not be increased regularly and the best interval is after one week or two weeks. If you are not sure about this, consult your doctor.

    The maximum dose you can take per day is 8mg. If you have been on other sulfonylureas before, there is likelihood that you may experience an overlapping drug effect for the first one week or two weeks. Hence, your doctor will monitor you closely to protect you from low blood sugar known as hypoglycemia.

    Finally, ensure that you take this medicine  at the same time daily to maintain an adequate level of it in your blood.

    Side Effects

    Amaryl can cause some side effects that you need to be aware of prior to taking it. So discuss these with your doctor to understand what to expect.

    Whereas serious side effects are rare, there is a chance that they can still happen. So, it is advisable to speak to your doctor if you notice a side effect that is not commonly associated with Amaryl.
