Dr Reddy'S Laboratories Ltd
Glimy 1mg Tablet 14's belongs to a class of antidiabetic called 'sulfonylureas' used to lower raised blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus - NIDDM). Type 2 diabetes develops if the body does not produce enough insulin or where the insulin that your body makes does not work as well as it should. Insulin is a substance that helps to lower the level of sugar in your blood, especially after meals.
The Glimy 1mg Tablet 14's contains Glimepiride which acts on insulin-secreting cells called beta cells inside the pancreas, activates calcium channels on cells which lets insulin pass out of the cell. This insulin then makes each cell in the body take up glucose and utilize it, thus lowering raised blood glucose. Thus, it prevents symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
Glimy 1mg Tablet 14's should be taken with food to avoid an upset stomach. Glimy 1mg Tablet 14's should be taken at the same time of the day each time for best results. Your doctor will decide what dose should be taken for better advice and it can change timely depending upon your condition.

Most of these side effects of Glimy 1mg Tablet 14's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
