that your blood sugar level has dropped.
This may happen in elderly patients
taking certain medicinal products (e.g.
those acting on the central nervous
system and beta-blockers). It may also
happen when you suffer from certain
disorders of the endocrine system (e.g.
certain disorders of thyroid function and
anterior pituitary or adreneocortical
insufficiency). Impaired liver function
may affect counter regulation.
In stress-situations (e.g. accidents, acute
operations, infections with fever, etc.) a
temporary switch to insulin may be
indicated.
Signs of raised blood sugar
(hyperglycaemia) - this may occur when
Glimepiride has not yet sufficiently
reduced the blood sugar, when you have
not complied with the treatment plan
prescribed by your doctor or in special
stress situations may include thirst,
frequent urination, dry mouth and dry
itching skin, fungal or skin infections and
reduced performance.
In such a case, you must contact your
doctor.
