Do all type 2 diabetes meds have the same side affects?
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.
