How many times can I take glucovance (glyburide and metformin) ( metrofin 500+ 5mg daonil) to control my diabetes type 2. I now take it once daily but my levels are high 200 ?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: May be two times

Your blood sugars are still not well controlled, hence you may have to try two times same medication and have a night time snack to prevent any hypoglycemia.

In brief: Call your doc

Glucovance (glyburide and metformin) is typically a twice per day drug.
If your numbers are 200's, call the doc and he or she will most likely tell you to increase it to 2x/day.
