How can I minimize the side effects of Amaryl?

You can minimize the side effects of Amaryl (glimepiride) by avoiding alcohol while taking this drug. Carefully monitoring your blood sugar levels may help you avoid dangerously low blood sugar levels, one of the possible side effects of Amaryl.

Amaryl may interact with other medications, so tell your doctor about all medications (prescription and nonprescription), vitamins, supplements and herbal remedies you take.

Tell your doctor if you have or have had hemolytic anemia, hormonal disorders or heart, liver or kidney disease.

Because Amaryl may make your skin sensitive, wear protective clothing, sunglasses and sunscreen when you're outside, and limit your time in the sun.
