Rosiglitazone and Glimepiride Drug Info

People with type 2 diabetes may benefit from taking rosiglitazone and glimepiride (Avandaryl®). As a combination drug, this product contains two active ingredients that work to help the pancreas produce more insulin and improve the body's insulin sensitivity. The medication comes in tablet form and is typically taken with the first meal of the day.
 
Most people tolerate this medicine well; however, it can cause side effects, including headaches, low blood sugar, and sore throat. Also, make sure your healthcare provider has information about other medications you are using before taking rosiglitazone and glimepiride.
