Avoid using Glimisave if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to sulfonylureas or sulfonamides or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.

Q. Is Glimisave useful in the management for prediabetes?

Q. Does Glimisave cause hair loss?

No, the use of Glimisave does not cause hair loss. However, diabetes itself can lead to hair loss. Talk to your doctor if you have excessive hair loss as it could be due to some other underlying condition. Excessive hair loss can also be a sign of your diabetes getting worsened.

Yes, Glimisave can cause weight gain. It is advisable to monitor your diet closely and exercise regularly while taking this medicine. Avoid skipping your meal as it can cause very low blood sugar levels and you may end up snacking or taking a lot of sugars.
