Frequently asked questions about Glimestar Products

Frequently asked questions about Glimepiride

Q. Does Glimestar make you sleepy?
Glimestar itself does not cause sleepiness. However, it may cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) when used with other anti-diabetes medicine. Because of this you may feel sleepy or problems in sleeping.
Q. Is Glimestar safe for kidneys?
Glimestar does not affect kidneys in patients with normal kidney function. However, its use should be avoided in patients with severe kidney disease since Glimestar is principally eliminated by the kidneys.
Q. Does Glimestar cause memory loss?
No, it is not known that Glimestar causes memory loss. However, use of Glimestar may cause low blood sugar which may cause problems with concentration and reduced alertness.
Q. Who should not take Glimestar?
Glimestar should be avoided by patients who are allergic to it, have severe kidney or liver disease, have G6PD-deficiency (an inherited condition affecting red blood cells), or are due to have surgery. Along with that, patients who are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant, or breastfeeding, or have insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1 diabetes mellitus) should also avoid taking Glimestar.
Q. How long does it take for Glimestar to start working?
Glimestar takes about 2 to 3 hours to reduce blood sugar levels. You may not feel any difference, but this does not mean it is not working. So, continue the medication as directed by your doctor and if you have any concerns, discuss it with your doctor.
Q. How long do I need to take Glimestar? Can I stop the medication?
Treatment for diabetes is usually for life. You may have to continue the treatment life long. Do not stop taking Glimestar without talking to your doctor. If you stop taking Glimestar suddenly your diabetes may get worse.
Q. How and when to take Glimestar?
Glimestar tablets are available in 1mg, 2mg, 3mg and 4mg doses. The dose and frequency of the medicine will be decided by your doctor. Generally, a single daily dose of Glimestar is sufficient to control blood sugar levels. The dose should be taken whole with water shortly before or during breakfast, but if you skip breakfast then it should be taken shortly before or during your first main meal.
Q. What can happen if I take more than the recommended dose of Glimestar?
Overdose of Glimestar may significantly decrease your blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). If you have taken an excess dose then you should instantly consume enough sugar (e.g., a small bar of sugar cubes, sweet juice or sweetened tea) and inform a doctor immediately. Severe cases of hypoglycemia accompanied by loss of consciousness and coma are cases of medical emergency requiring immediate medical treatment and admission into hospital.
