How is Amaryl prescribed?

Doctors usually prescribe a low dose of Amaryl (glimepiride) to start, such as 1 milligram (mg) or 2 mg taken once daily with breakfast. Your doctor will want to see how your body responds to this type 2 diabetes drug and will adjust your dose if your blood sugar levels become too low or are not lowered enough. It is important to monitor your blood sugar levels as directed while taking this drug to make sure they stay within safe levels.
