The active principle element present in the Amaryl is Glimepiride. It is an oral drug extensively used to lower the blood-glucose level in diabetes patients. This belongs to sulfonylurea class. Glimepiride is a crystalline odorless powder of yellowish-white in color. This powder is manufactured in different concentrations viz., 1-mg, 2-mg, and 4-mg. In addition to glimepiride, AMARYL tablet contains magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, sodium starch glycolate, and lactose. The CAS Registry Number is 93479-97-1. Glimepiride is insoluble in water. Amaryl plays an important role in controlling type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. The effect of this drug will be synergized by regular exercise and perfect diet.
There is no fixed dosage regimen for AMARYL in the glycemic control of type-2 diabetes mellitus. But short-term administration is more than sufficient to counteract diabetes in patients having well control using diet and exercise. You should not take Amaryl if you are allergic to sulfonylureas. Your health care provider will tell you how much quantity you should take daily. It all depends on the glucose level in the blood. Your doctor will increase or decrease accordingly. You should take Amaryl before or after meal.
Amaryl is contraindicated to children. If you have become pregnant when you’re under the treatment of Amaryl, inform your health care provider about your condition to stop medication. If you have taken double the dose or over dosage of Amaryl, you may go for low blood sugar. Immediately contact your physician to take antidote for this condition. Before reaching your doctor’s office, you can include half a can of soft drinks or 3-4 jelly beans or three teaspoon of sugar or honey. You should be very careful while you’re being exposed with sunlight as Amaryl will make your skin more sensitive to sun burn or itchy than normal. When you’re outdoors, wear protective clothing and use a 15+ sunscreen. Driving should be avoided as low glucose level will slow your reaction time. It is always recommended to keep the tablet in the blister pack below 25? c. Store the tablets away from the reach of your children.
