Whats the difference between glucophage vs glimpeiride?


Rajive Goel 10 April 2012

Glucophage (metformin) is a prescription medication that is licensed to treat type 2 diabetes (also known as noninsulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes).

Glimepiride is a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by helping the pancreas produce more insulin and allowing the cells of the body to respond better to insulin. As a result, blood sugar levels decrease. Glimepiride comes in tablet form and in six different strengths, varying from 1 mg to 8 mg, and should be taken orally once daily with the first meal of the day.

However for more info do call your doc/pharmacist, please.

Take care, best wishes!
