Glycomet GP (500+1) mg is a prescription treatment for patients with Type 2 diabetes. It combines two active ingredients Glimepiride and metformin, especially for those whose blood sugar levels can’t be controlled by diet and exercise alone or with a single antidiabetic agent. Glimepiride belongs to a class of drugs known as sulfonylurea, which works by increasing the insulin produced by the pancreas to lower blood glucose. Metformin is a biguanide, which lowers glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from the intestines and increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin.
Please inform your doctor if you are allergic to Glimepiride/metformin or other medicines. The combination of antidiabetic medicine is not recommended for children. Avoid breastfeeding while taking medication as it may be excreted to breast milk if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, as it may cause harm to the unborn baby. Avoid alcohol while taking medicine, as it may increase the risk of developing lactic acidosis. Drive only when you are alert after taking this combination of medicine. Take short, frequent meals and avoid prolonged fasting while taking Glimepiride/Metformin.
The combination of antidiabetic drugs is not recommended for children. Beware of symptoms of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), which include sweating, palpitations, intense thirst, dizziness, dry skin, dry mouth, shivering, frequent urination etc. Whenever you experience these symptoms, immediately consume sugar candies or glucose biscuits and consult your doctor. Make sure you carry these with you, especially during long intervals.
Glycomet GP may interact with antibiotics, antacids, calcium channel blockers, anticancer drugs, heart-related medicines, HIV/AIDS drugs, insulin, anticonvulsants, and antifungal agents.
Glycomet GP (500+1) mg is associated with common side effects like hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level), stomach pain, diarrhoea, headache, nausea, altered taste, and upper respiratory tract infections.
