Metformin and glimepiride work differently to control blood glucose. They can be used together or individually depending on how the person tolerates it. If you are not able to tolerate metformin or glimepiride then please discuss with your doctor as there are other classes of medicines that can be used to treat diabetes. If all oral medicines are not working then you can use insulin. All the best.
