Glyburide is an oral antidiabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes the kind that occurs when the body either does not make enough insulin or fails to use insulin properly. Insulin transfers sugar from the bloodstream to the body's cells where it is then used for energy.

There are two forms of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes results from a complete shutdown of normal insulin production and usually requires insulin injections for life while type 2 diabetes can usually be treated by dietary changes exercise and/or oral antidiabetic medications such as Glyburide. This medication controls diabetes by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin and by helping insulin to work better. Type 2 diabetics may need insulin injections sometimes only temporarily during stressful periods such as illness or on a long-term basis if an oral antidiabetic medication fails to control blood sugar.

Glyburide can be used alone or along with a drug called metformin (Glucophage) if diet plus either drug alone fails to control sugar levels.

Your doctor will tailor your dosage to your individual needs.

ADULTS

Usually the doctor will prescribe an initial daily dose of 2.5 to 5 milligrams. Maintenance therapy usually ranges from 1.25 to 20 milligrams daily. Daily doses greater than 20 milligrams are not recommended. In most cases Glyburide is taken once a day; however people taking more than 10 milligrams a day may respond better to twice-a-day dosing.

CHILDREN

The safety and effectiveness of Glyburide have not been established in children.

OLDER ADULTS

Older malnourished or debilitated individuals or those with impaired kidney and liver function usually receive lower initial and maintenance doses to minimize the risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
