What is the most important information I should know about glyburide?

Multum donot

You should not use this medication if you are being treated with bosentan (Tracleer), if you have type 1 diabetes, or if you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis (call your doctor for treatment with insulin).

What is glyburide?

Glyburide is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels.

Glyburide is used to treat type 2 diabetes.

This medicine is not for treating type 1 diabetes.

Glyburide may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my health care provider before taking glyburide?

Multum donot

You should not use glyburide if you are allergic to it, or:

  • if you are being treated with bosentan (Tracleer);
  • if you have type 1 diabetes; or
  • if you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis (call your doctor for treatment with insulin).

To make sure glyburide is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • hemolytic anemia (a lack of red blood cells);
  • an enzyme deficiency called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD);
  • a nerve disorder affecting bodily functions;
  • liver or kidney disease;
  • if you have taken chlorpropamide in the past 2 weeks;
  • if you are allergic to sulfa drugs; or
  • if you have been using insulin or taking chlorpropamide (Diabinese).

Certain oral diabetes medications may increase your risk of serious heart problems. However, not treating your diabetes can damage your heart and other organs. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking glyburide.

Multum nopreg

FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether glyburide will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medicine. Your doctor may want you to use insulin during pregnancy.

Multum nobrfeed

It is not known whether glyburide passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.

Older adults may be more likely to have low blood sugar while taking glyburide.

How should I take glyburide?

Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Take glyburide with your first meal of the day, unless your doctor tells you otherwise.

Your blood sugar will need to be checked often, and you may need other blood tests at your doctor's office.

Multum dizzy

Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can happen to everyone who has diabetes. Symptoms include headache, hunger, sweating, pale skin, irritability, dizziness, feeling shaky, or trouble concentrating. Always keep a source of sugar with you in case you have low blood sugar. Sugar sources include fruit juice, hard candy, crackers, raisins, and non-diet soda. Be sure your family and close friends know how to help you in an emergency.

If you have severe hypoglycemia and cannot eat or drink, use a glucagon injection. Your doctor can prescribe a glucagon emergency injection kit and tell you how to use it.

Also watch for signs of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) such as increased thirst, increased urination, hunger, dry mouth, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, blurred vision, and weight loss.

Multum donot

Check your blood sugar carefully during times of stress, travel, illness, surgery or medical emergency, vigorous exercise, or if you drink alcohol or skip meals. These things can affect your glucose levels and your dose needs may also change. Do not change your medication dose or schedule without your doctor's advice.

Also check your blood sugar levels very closely during pregnancy.

If your doctor changes your brand, strength, or type of glyburide, your dosage needs may change. Ask your pharmacist if you have any questions about the new kind of glyburide you receive at the pharmacy.

Multum rt

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

Multum emt

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. A glyburide overdose can cause life-threatening hypoglycemia.

Symptoms of severe hypoglycemia include extreme weakness, confusion, tremors, sweating, fast heart rate, trouble speaking, nausea, vomiting, rapid breathing, fainting, and seizure (convulsions).

What should I avoid while taking glyburide?

If you also take colesevelam, avoid taking it within 4 hours after you take glyburide.

Multum noalcohol

Avoid drinking alcohol. It lowers blood sugar and may interfere with your diabetes treatment.

Multum nosun

Avoid exposure to sunlight or tanning beds. Glyburide can make you sunburn more easily. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors.

What other drugs will affect glyburide?

Other drugs may interact with glyburide, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell each of your health care providers about all medicines you use now and any medicine you start or stop using. Some drugs can increase or decrease the effects of glyburide on lowering your blood sugar.

Where can I get more information?

Your pharmacist can provide more information about glyburide.

Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use this medication only for the indication prescribed.
