Amaryl is a type of oral medication used to control high blood pressure in the body by decreasing blood sugar levels. This medication helps your body to respond well to the insulin produced in the pancreas. The medication is generally suggested by the doctor to control diabetes in the patient. The doctor may also suggest the diabetes patient to do exercise and diet.

Information you should know

You should know how to recognize when there is low blood sugar in the body. Also keep a source of sugar in handy, so that you can take it immediately when you have low blood sugar. Sources of sugar such as candy and sweets work best. In case your blood sugar level has dropped rapidly, you can take an injection of glucagons. If your blood sugar level becomes too high, then you should call the doctor immediately.

To tell the doctor

Tell the doctor if you have any major disease such as heart disease or liver disease. Also tell your doctor if you are pregnant as the medicine may pass to the unborn child and can prove harmful. Also do not take Amaryl without consulting the doctor if you are breastfeeding your baby.
