Hi..
both of these drugs are in same group(Sulfonylurea)..both are used for Type 2 diabetes with same mechanism..
their difference in their side effects(alittle) and their dosage form:
Gliclazide:immediate-release tablet contains 80 mg. Modified release formulations contain 30 mg and 60 mg.
glibenclamide:1.25 mg, 2.5 mg and 5 mg, under the trade names Diabeta, Glynase and Micronase in the United States and Daonil, Semi-Daonil and Euglucon in the United Kingdom and Delmide in India.

good luck.
