Glypride 1 mg is used to control blood sugar in people who have type 2 diabetes. It is taken along with proper diet and exercise. It can be administered along with other anti-diabetic medicines. The medicine helps to control blood sugar, but it will not cure diabetes. Remember to continue taking medicine even if you feel fine. The medicine should not be used to treat patients who have type 1 diabetes, a condition in which the body does not produce enough insulin. The medicine will only help reduce blood sugar if the body produces insulin naturally.
Glimepiride is the active ingredient present in Glypride. It belongs to a category of drugs known as sulfonylureas. The medicine helps the pancreas to release insulin. Insulin is a hormone that the body produces to transport sugar from the bloodstream into the cells. After the sugar enters the cells, they can use it as fuel for the body. In type 2 diabetes, the body does not produce adequate insulin, or it cannot use the insulin that it makes. The sugar, therefore, remains in the bloodstream. This leads to high blood sugar levels.
Generally, the initial Glimepiride dosage for adults is 1 to 2 mg orally once daily. The maintenance dose is 1 to 4 mg orally once a day. The maximum daily dose that can be given is 8 mg. The dose may vary as per your condition; therefore, it is important to discuss the right dose you need to achieve ideal blood glucose levels with your doctor.
The medicine is contraindicated in patients suffering from certain conditions. These include diabetic coma, hypersensitivity to any ingredients, ketoacidosis, insulin-dependent diabetes, renal disorders, and hepatic function disorders.
The anti-diabetic medicine must be taken during or immediately after a meal. If you happen to take your meal at irregular hours or skip it altogether, the medicine can lead to hypoglycaemia.
Discuss the risks of the medicine with your doctor. You should inform your doctor if:
- You are pregnant or are planning to become so
• You are undergoing surgery
• You ever had G6PD deficiency
• You have kidney, liver, or heart disease
• You have hormone issues related to the thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal gland
