Order Amaryl Online

Order Amaryl
Amaryl (Glimepiride) is used with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood).


Glimepiride (glye-MEP-i-ride) is an anti-diabetic drug (sulfonylurea-type) used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar. Glimepiride stimulates your pancreas to make more insulin and also makes your body more sensitive to insulin. Glimepiride may be used with or without insulin. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor for more information.
