Do all type 2 diabetes meds have the same side affects?
25 Aug 2011
Glyburide is a prescription medication that is used to treat type 2 diabetes (also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes).
Glyburide is part of a class of diabetes medications known as sulfonylureas. They help the pancreas produce more insulin. Sulfonylureas may also help the cells respond better to insulin. This helps to lower blood sugar and keep it under better control.
Glipizide is a prescription medication used to treat type 2 diabetes (also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes). Glipizide extended-release tablets are also available. These tablets release the medication slowly, providing a more even level of medication in the blood.
Glipizide is part of a group of diabetes medications called sulfonylureas. Sulfonylureas help the pancreas make more insulin. They also help the cells respond better to insulin. This helps to lower blood sugar and keep it under better control.
Yes, all meds have some or the other side effects, different people have different effects due the constitution & various other factors.
Hope this helps? Take care, be well, please!
