Glyburide is used to control blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes who cannot manage blood sugar levels by diet and exercise alone. It controls diabetes by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar.
Before using Glyburide, tell your doctor about any of the following: if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding; if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine; if you have any other medical conditions; if you are allergic to any ingredient of this medicine; if you have elevated keystone levels or type 1 diabetes.
