Glyburide and Metformin Info

If you have type 2 diabetes, your healthcare provider may recommend a medication called glyburide and metformin (Glucovance®). This medication comes in the form of a tablet and is a combination of two active ingredients that work together to lower blood sugar. It is usually taken once or twice daily with meals. This medication is not approved to treat type 1 diabetes.
 
Most people have no problems with this medication; however, it is not right for everyone. Prior to beginning treatment with glyburide and metformin, inform your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking and any other medical conditions you have, especially congestive heart failure (CHF) or adrenal insufficiency.
