Product Information

  • Description

    Glimepiride is an insulin secretagogue, this drug is only effective in patients with residual pancreatic beta-cell activity. Glimepiride acts at ATP-dependent potassium channels on the cell membrane of pancreatic beta cells, resulting in iatrogenic depolarization by prevention of potassium from cell excitation. This depolarization activates voltage-dependent calcium channels on the cell membrane, resulting in an increase in intracellular calcium levels and increase in subsequent exocytosis of insulin into the bloodstream. Insulin now acts on cell membrane receptors and triggers GLUT-4 expression and glucose movement into the cell, this mechanism lowers blood glucose levels. Glimepiride interacts with Epac3, a nucleotide exchanger that works by mediating the exocytosis of insulin granules. Glimepiride is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug of the sulfonylurea class. It can be used concomitantly with other drugs for glycemic control like metformin and also along with insulin. But its use along with insulin can cause hypoglycemia( low level of glucose). Used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to lower the blood glucose (sugar) in patients with noninsulin-dependent (Type 2) diabetes mellitus whose hyperglycemia (high level of glucose) cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone.
