I like the ease of taking pill once a day. It works great following a good diet and it keeps my blood sugar in the good zone 95% of the time. I find that I am my worse enemy by not always eating right. I did not have any weight gain. I am 57 and have been using Amayrl for over 5 years, it has been a life saver for me.

Caused severe weight gain. MD did not even know that this was a side effect. We have to be our own advocate.

I have used this drug for 5 years, however, lately it is not as effective as usual after evening meals. Blood sugar has become 175 at bed time.

Works great with Avandamet! Quickly brought my blood sugar under control. Some hypoglycemic reactions however. It's awesome!

Weight gain, experienced some hair loss. Doctor claimed it wasn't from Amaryl, I know it was the only new drug I was on at the time my hair became thinner.

Severe weight gain.. was taken Actos also and it didnt help with my weight either..so far all the medications given to me the glimepiride has help somewhat but it does help to retain fluid weight severely..now they are talking about putting back on the Lantus along with Glimepiride daily...

Started taking 1 mg each morning, blood sugar dropped too low in afternoon, advised by Dr to take 1/2mg in morning and 1/2mg evening still not working as well. Blood sugar is high before breakfast even taking medication. Did not know about weight gain. Will have to address this issue. Still not sure what to do about this medication!!!

When I first began this medication, I found quite effective, but if I took in the morning, I had problems with my blood sugar dropping very low. That has seemed to gotten better over the last few months. Very recently, I am now having moderate to bad stomachaches every day that I take it. The effectiveness is also not as good as it was in the beginning.
