Glimepiride + Metformin is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Glimepiride + Metformin1 and Glimepiride + Metformin2. Glimepiride + Metformin1 is a sulfonylurea which works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas in order to lower the blood glucose. Glimepiride + Metformin2 is a biguanide which works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin.
