Amaryl – High Blood Sugar Treatment with Amaryl
Amaryl is a sulfonylurea-type drug used in the treatment of high blood sugar. It
is typically used as a portion of an overall treatment plan that will also include
diet and exercise. The drug contained in Amaryl is Glimepiride.
Glimepiride is drug that is intended to aid the body in using the insulin made by
the pancreas. Amaryl treats type 2 diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels through
stimulating the release of the insulin naturally created by the body, in conjunction
with a diet and exercise plan. It is an oral medication that is usually taken once
a day. It is important to consume a full glass of water with Amaryl. Proper treatment
of diabetes may reduce the risk of a number of other ailments, including kidney
problems, cardiac arrest, stroke, blindness and loss of extremities.
Just like any medication, Amaryl may induce side effects. Some of the less
serious side effects may include nausea, rash, headache, fatigue, diarrhoea, sensitivity
to sunlight. Amaryl may also cause more serious side effects that will require immediate
medical attention, like numbness or tingling, breathing problems, feeling faint,
pain in the upper stomach area, confusion, hallucinations, fever, bleeding, severe
rash, unusually dark urine or light stools. Diabetes is a serious condition. It
is important to know the symptoms of both high and low blood sugar. When taking
medication to lower blood sugar levels, be aware of the signs of low blood sugar
and be prepared to treat them if they occur. Low blood sugar is equally as dangerous
as high blood sugar. Obtaining this medication from a
Canadian pharmacy will require a prescription from a licensed physician.
