Patients should be cautious of the symptoms of hypoglycemia and always carry a quick source of sugar with them like a candy or a fruit juice.

Q. Can Glitaray cause pancreatitis?

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