Glimepiride (trade names include Amaryl, Ameride, Diaglim, Glimepiride Sandoz, Diapride, Getryl, Glimepirid Hexal, Norizec, Solosa) is an oral anti-diabetic medication from sulfonylureas pharmacological group. This medicine is used for treating diabetes type 2 in patients who cannot control blood sugar levels only by diet and exercises. It works by causing the pancreas to release insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar. Glimepiride is used alone or in combined therapy with other antidiabetic drugs.

    Indications and usage:

    Amaryl (Glimepiride) is a sulfonylurea indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic controlin adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    Limitations of use: not for treating type 1 diabetes mellitus or diabetic ketoacidosis.


    Contraindications:

  • Hypersensitivity to glimepiride or any of the product's ingredients.
  • Hypersensitivity to sulfonamide derivatives.


    Dosage and administration:

  • Recommended starting dose of Amaryl (Glimepiride) is 1 or 2 mg once daily. Increase in 1 or 2 mg increments no morefrequently than every 12 weeks based on glycemic response. Maximum recommended doseis 8 mg once daily.
  • Administer with breakfast or first meal of the day.
  • Use 1 mg starting dose and titrate slowly in patients at increased risk for hypoglycemia (e.g. elderly, patients with renal impairment).


    Overdosage:

    An overdosage of glimepiride, as with other sulfonylureas, can produce severe hypoglycemia. Mildepisodes of hypoglycemia can be treated with oral glucose. Severe hypoglycemic reactions constitutemedical emergencies requiring immediate treatment. Severe hypoglycemia with coma, seizure, orneurological impairment can be treated with glucagon or intravenous glucose. Continued observationand additional carbohydrate intake may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparentclinical recovery.


    Dosage forms and strengths:

    Amaryl (Glimepiride) tablets (scored): 1 mg, 2 mg, 4 mg.


    Warnings and precautions:

  • Hypoglycemia: May be severe. Ensure proper patient selection, dosing, and instructions, particularly in at-risk populations (e.g., elderly, renally impaired) and when used with otheranti-diabetic medications.
  • Hypersensitivity Reactions: postmarketing reports include anaphylaxis, angioedema and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. If a reaction is suspected, promptly discontinue Amaryl, assessfor other potential causes for the reaction, and institute alternative treatment for diabetes.
  • Hemolytic anemia: can occur if glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficient. Consider a non-sulfonylurea alternative.
  • Potential increased risk of cardiovascular mortality with sulfonylureas: inform patient of risks, benefits and treatment alternatives.
  • Macrovascular outcomes: no clinical studies establishing conclusive evidence of macrovas-cular risk reduction with Amaryl (Glimepiride) tablets or any other anti-diabetic drug.


    Side effects, adverse reactions:

    Common adverse reactions of glimepiride in clinical trials ( >= 5% and more common than with placebo) include hypoglycemia, headache, nausea, and dizziness. To report suspected adverse reactions, contact Sanofi-Aventis, US or local FDA.


    Drug interactions:

  • Certain medications may affect glucose metabolism, requiring Amaryl dose adjustment andclose monitoring of blood glucose.
  • Miconazole: severe hypoglycemia can occur when glimepiride and oral miconazole are usedconcomitantly.
  • Cytochrome P450 2C9 interactions: inhibitors and inducers of cytochrome P450 2C9 mayaffect glycemic control by altering glimepiride plasma concentrations.
  • Colesevelam: coadministration may reduce glimepiride absorption. Amaryl should beadministered at least 4 hours prior to colesevelam.


    Patient counseling information:

    Hypoglycemia

    Explain the symptoms and treatment of hypoglycemia as well as conditions that predispose tohypoglycemia. Inform patients that their ability to concentrate and react may be impaired as a resultof hypoglycemia and that this may present a risk in situations where these abilities are especiallyimportant, such as driving or operating other machinery.

    Hypersensitivity

    ReactionsInform patients that hypersensitivity reactions may occur with Amaryl and that if a reaction occursto seek medical treatment and discontinue glimepiride.

    Pregnancy
