Sulfonylureas


Since 1994, sulfonylureas is the only drug used for diabetes in United States. It stimulates the pancreas for the production of more insulin to lower down the blood sugar. It can be effective when the pancreas can release some insulin by its own. Sulfonylureas such as glipizide (Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase) and glimepiride (Amaryl) are prescribed more often. If your body is sensitive to sulfa drug then you must avoid sulfonylureas.

Side Effects:

  • Low blood sugar.
  • Stomach upset.
  • Skin rash and itching.
  • Weight gain.
