How dose amaryl (glimepiride) affect blood sugar, insulin?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Carol Cheney
44 years experience in Endocrinology
Lowers blood sugar: Amaryl (glimepiride) stimulates the pancreas to release insulin, which will cause the blood sugar to fall. This release of Insulin occurs without relation to whether one has eaten, so if one goes a long period without eating, the blood sugar can become abnormally low.
