Are there any risks associated with taking Glimepiride?

Glimepiride affects everyone differently, so make sure you understand how it affects you before driving or putting yourself in any potentially dangerous situation. If you develop an allergic reaction, including hives, swelling in your face and difficulty breathing, contact your doctor right away. If you have a history of allergic reactions, you may be at a greater risk. Pregnant and breast-feeding women who are taking glimepiride may put the fetus or nursing infant at risk. If you are taking certain medications, such as decongestants, you could develop complications. People with heart problems, type I diabetes, stomach problems or hormonal problems are at risk of complications from taking glimepiride.
