Glimepiride - Overview
Glimepiride, marketed under the name Amaryl, is prescribed to some adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. People in need of a glimepiride prescription can connect with a medical provider using Push Health who can prescribe Amaryl if appropriate to do so.
What Is Glimepiride Used For?
Glimepiride, marketed under the name Amaryl, belongs to a class of medications known as sulfonylureas medications. Amaryl is prescribed as an adjunct to exercise and diet to improve glycemic control in adult patients who have type 2 diabetes mellitus. Unlike medications such as pioglitazone (Actos), glimepiride is thought to work by stimulating beta cells in the pancreas to produce more insulin and perhaps also increasing tissue sensitivity to insulin. Amaryl can be used as initial drug therapy and is sometimes used in combination with metformin. There is no fixed dosage regimen when using Amaryl for managing diabetes and the medication is typically adjusted based on the patient's fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c level. Additional research is being done to investigate the effect of glimepiride on oxidation and inflammation.
Glimepiride - Dosage and Cost
Glimepiride itself is a largely odorless powder that is white to yellowish-white in color. As Amaryl, glimepiride is available as glimepiride 4 mg tablets, glimepiride 2 mg tablets and glimepiride 1 mg tablets. After oral administration, glimepiride is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and generally reaches maximum effect at 3 hours. Glimepiride is highly metabolized in the body and the metabolites are mostly excreted in the urine. Glimepiride 4 mg is considered moderately affordable at 5 cents per tablet. Costs associated with a glimepiride tablet prescription are often covered under one's insurance. Glimepiride coupons may be available to help reduce the cost of the medication even further.

Questions about potential side effects resulting from glimepiride use should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider.
