No. Glibenclamide and glipizide are different medicines; however, they belong to same family of drugs called sulfonylureas
Q. Does Glucosil play any role in the treatment of Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)?

Q. Why Glucosil should be cautiously used in elderly patients?

Q. Is Glucosil useful in the management for prediabetes?
