Were you looking for information about Glimepiride? Glimeperide is a common misspelling of glimepiride.
Glimepiride (Amaryl®) is a type 2 diabetes medication that can be prescribed to help lower blood sugar levels. Glimepiride works by helping the pancreas to produce more insulin and to help the cells of the body respond better to insulin. As a result, blood sugar levels decrease. Glimepiride comes in a tablet form and should be taken once daily with breakfast. As with any medication, it is possible to overdose on glimepiride. If you notice any symptoms of a glimepiride overdose, such as shakiness, a fast heartbeat, or confusion, seek immediate medical attention.
