Q. Can Bilypsa Tablet be an alternative medicine for glimepiride in treatment of diabetes?

No, Bilypsa Tablet can’t be used as an alternative for glimepiride.

It acts by a unique mechanism in which it reduces the synthesis and secretion of triglycerides which are a type of lipid or cholesterol in blood. It also acts by improving insulin sensitivity of the body for better utilization of the existent insulin and hence lowering the blood sugar.

Consult your doctor before you take this medication and do not replace or alter it with any other medication.
