effect

  • Works by releasing insulin from the pancreas and increasing the cell's sensitivity to insulin. This improves metabolism processes, incl. sugar burn, so the sugar content in the blood is lowered.
  • The effect occurs quickly and lasts approx. 24 hours.
  • The half life in the blood (T?) is 5-8 hours.

Special warnings

Amaryl® should be used with caution:

  • After long periods of time, the drug should be used with caution, especially if you are being treated with a beta blocker (antihypertensive agent) as the symptoms of low blood sugar may be uncharacteristic.

Using other medicines

It is important to inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking.
  • The effect of Amaryl® may be increased by a number of drugs, for example:
    • certain antihypertensive drugs (non-selective beta blockers and ACE inhibitors)
    • blood thinners (phenprocoumon and warfarin)
    • phenylbutazone (antidiabetic agent)
    • sulfamethoxazole / trimethoprim (antibiotic)
    • anti-ulcers (ranitidine)
    • fluconazole (fungicide).
  • The effect of Amaryl® can be reduced by a number of drugs, eg:

    • glucocorticoids (adrenal gland hormone)
    • rifampicin (tuberculosis).
  • Amaryl® should be taken at least 4 hours before colesevelam (cholesterol lowering agent) to prevent colesevelam from reducing the effect of Amaryl®.
