Comment:
Struggled with Metformin and Onglyza duo for a year or so. Dr. added 2mg glimepiride and BAMM - numbers are much lower. A1C dropped dramatically from over 7 to 5.0. Just make sure you have steady meals as it does drop glucose levels to the 70s if you're not eating at normal intervals. Overall, very good so far.

Comment:
went from 1mg, then 2mg and did not help blood sugar. Two days ago was switched to 4mg and my blood sugar has sored. 289 yesterday and 233 today, after meals check. Had to quit taking metformin due to kidneys. Why would the stronger dose make my blood sugar go way up? Had lettuce salad with chicken strips the first day and veggies with smoked beef sausage the second day.

Comment:
I am 59 years old and started taking Glimepiride 2 mg twice a day about 3 or 4 years ago. I started noticing petit mal seizures shortly afterwards, but contributed them to other medical conditions. I started having gran mal seizures in November 2013, with the most recent seizure on 10/2/2014, where I was unconscious for 25 minutes. I need to find out if others are experiencing seizures also.
