DRUG INTERACTION

Medicines that can increase blood sugar can reverse the action of glimepiride. These drugs include diuretics, for example, hydrochlorothiazide (Hydrodiuril, Ezide, Hydro-Par, Microzide, and many combinations with other drugs), furosemide (Lasix), corticosteroids such as prednisone and methylprednisolone (Medrol), phenytoin (Dilantin),niacin, and sympathomimetics such as pseudoephedrine (Sudafed). Beta blockers such as propranolol (Inderal) and atenolol (Tenormin) can cause low or high blood sugar.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

This medication is an oral hypoglycemic (anti-diabetic drug), prescribed for type 2 diabetes.

Metformin(500mg)

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Pioglitazone acts as an agonist at peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPAR) in target tissues for insulin action such as adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, and liver. Activation of PPAR-gamma receptors increases the transcription of insulin-responsive genes involved in the control of glucose production, transport, and utilization. Pioglitazone both enhances tissue sensitivity to insulin and reduces hepatic gluconeogenesis.
