Glypride 4 mg is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug of the sulfonylurea class. Glypride 4 mg contains Glimepiride as the active ingredient; the medicine is administered orally. Glypride is a prescription treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes. Antidiabetic medicine is prescribed as an addition to proper dietary management, exercise, and weight reduction to lower the blood sugar in patients with Type 2 diabetes whose blood sugar can't be controlled by diet and exercise alone. To properly control your diabetes, following the diet, exercise, and weight loss program recommended by your doctor is important. Regular monitoring of sugar should be done according to your doctor's recommendations.
A Glimepiride formulation is often prescribed in combination with metformin when diet and exercise, and Glimepiride or metformin alone do not result in adequate control of blood sugar levels. It is also prescribed for use in combination with insulin to lower blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes. Elevated blood sugar can't be controlled by diet and exercise in combination with a drug used to lower blood sugar levels.
Glypride 4 mg should not be given to patients:
— Hypersensitive to Glimepiride, other sulphonamides, sulfonylureas, or any medicine ingredients.
— Diabetic ketoacidosis, with or without coma. This problem should be treated with insulin.
— Type 1 diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus
— Pregnant women
— Breast-feeding women
The administration of Glypride should be cautiously done in patients with severe impairment of liver function and dialysis patients.
Glypride may cause a significant drop in blood pressure. Make sure you know what to do if your blood sugar level gets too low.
