Glimepiride & Metformin Hydrochloride Prolonged Release
Glimepiride is a medication classified as a sulfonylurea, which is a type of oral antidiabetic drug.
It works by stimulating the pancreas to release more insulin, which helps lower blood sugar levels.
Glimepiride is typically used to lower blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes when dietary and lifestyle changes alone are not sufficient to control their diabetes.
Metformin is a biguanide medication and is one of the most commonly prescribed oral antidiabetic drugs.
Metformin works by decreasing the amount of sugar produced by the liver and increasing the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin, thereby improving the uptake of glucose into cells.
Metformin is usually the first-line treatment for type 2 diabetes.
