In brief: Amaryl (glimepiride) effect/time

Amaryl (glimepiride) works by stimulating beta cells in pancreas to produce insulin.
It should start working right away as it gets absorped, if after two weeks you dont see its effect on blood sugar, than you will need to increase the dose gradually to the maximum dose , to see the ful effect.Often you have to use another drug with it like metformin or actose.
