About Glibenclamide
Insulin is made naturally in the pancreas. It regulates the amount of sugar in the blood. If the body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or does not properly use the insulin it makes, this results in the condition called diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes).

Glibenclamide works by increasing the amount of insulin that the pancreas secretes.

Before taking glibenclamide
Before taking glibenclamide make sure your doctor or pharmacist knows:

If you are pregnant, trying for a baby or breast-feeding.
If you suffer from kidney or liver problems.
If you suffer from porphyria (a blood disorder).
If you are elderly.
If you are taking other medicines, including those available to buy without a prescription, herbal or complementary medicines.
If you have ever had an allergic reaction to this or any other medicine.

How to take glibenclamide
Before beginning treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet.

Take your medication exactly as directed by your doctor.

Take glibenclamide with or immediately after your first main meal of the day (usually this is breakfast). Swallow your dose with a drink of water.

If you forget to take a dose, take one as soon as you remember unless it is nearly time for your next dose. Do not take two doses on the same day to make up.

Getting the most from your treatment
If you are due to have any treatment like an operation or dental treatment, it is important that you tell the person carrying out the treatment that you are taking glibenclamide.

Keep your regular doctor or clinic appointments so your progress can be monitored. Do not stop taking this medicine without speaking to your doctor first.

It is important that you follow any exercise or dietary instructions that you have been given by your doctor or diabetic nurse.

Your doctor may recommend that you test for sugar in the blood or urine to check your diabetes is being well controlled.

Hypoglycaemia is likely to occur if you miss a meal, if you exercise more than usual, if you cannot eat because of sickness or if you drink a lot of alcohol. Symptoms of hypoglycaemia include sweating, paleness, headache, faintness or drowsiness. If these occur, drink or eat something containing sugar followed by a starchy snack such as a sandwich, to raise your blood sugar.

Drivers should take special care on long journeys. If hypoglycaemia occurs, you should stop in a safe place, switch off the engine, eat or drink something containing sugar, and wait at least fifteen minutes before continuing on your journey. Driving is not permitted when you are unable to recognise the warning signs of a hypoglycaemic attack.

If you buy any medicines, check with a pharmacist that they are safe to take with your other medicines.
