Amaryl 1 mg Tablet belongs to a class of antidiabetic called ‘sulfonylureas’ used to lower raised blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus – NIDDM). Type 2 diabetes develops if the body does not produce enough insulin or when your body’s insulin does not work as well as it should. Insulin is a substance that helps to lower the level of sugar in your blood, especially after meals.
The Amaryl 1 mg Tablet contains Glimepiride which acts on insulin-secreting cells called beta cells inside the pancreas and activates calcium channels on cells which lets insulin pass out of the cell. This insulin then makes each cell in the body take up glucose and utilize it, thus lowering raised blood glucose. Therefore, it prevents symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
Take Amaryl 1 mg Tablet 30’s as prescribed by your doctor. Some people may experience an allergic reaction (skin rash, hives & sensitivity to sun rays), liver dysfunction (jaundice, bile duct blockage, and hepatitis), seizures, coma & low glucose levels. Most of these side effects of Amaryl 1 mg Tablet 30’s do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
Amaryl 1 mg Tablet 30’s should not be stopped even if you feel better without consulting your doctor as the sugar level keeps changing. If you stop taking Amaryl 1 mg Tablet 30’s abruptly, it may increase your sugar levels which could further increase the risk of eyesight loss (retinopathy), kidney (nephropathy) and nerve damage (neuropathy). Amaryl 1 mg Tablet 30’s should not be taken if you have type 1 diabetes mellitus or severe kidney or liver disease.
