For instance, hypoglycemia may occur within an hour of taking diabetes medications, such as sulfonylureas (Diabeta, Glucotrol, Amaryl) and glinides (Starlix, Prandin).
All patients were receiving an oral sulfonylurea, with 85% taking glipizide (Glucotrol XL) 10 mg to 20 mg per day, 9% taking glimepiride (Amaryl) 4 to 8 mg per day, and 6% taking glyburide (generic or DiaBeta) 10 to 20 mg per day.
All subjects were being treated with oral sulfonylurea agents in maximum daily recommended dosages, ie, tolazamide, 1000 mg (Tolinase, The Upjohn Company, Kalamazoo, Mich); glyburide, 20 mg (DiaBeta, Hoechst-Roussel Pharmaceuticals, Inc, Somerville, NJ); and glipizide, 40 mg (Glucotrol, Roerig Division of Pfizer, Inc, New York, NY).
Other classes of diabetes drugs, such as the sulfonylureas glyburide (Micronase, Diabeta, Glynase) and glipizide (Glucotrol), stimulate the pancreas directly.
On the other hand, glimepiride (Amaryl), glipizide (Glucotrol), and glyburide (Diabeta, Micronase) do not appear to lower cardiovascular risk.
