When should I call my doctor if I am taking Amaryl?

You should call your doctor right away if you experience certain side effects when taking Amaryl (glimepiride). These include unconsciousness and other symptoms of severely low blood sugar, yellowing of the skin or eyes, light-colored stools, dark urine, pain in the upper right part of the stomach, unusual bleeding or bruising, diarrhea, fever or sore throat. Amaryl can cause other side effects, most commonly dizziness, headache, weakness and nausea. Call your doctor if these symptoms bother you or don't go away.

Although it is rare, some people have an allergic reaction to Amaryl. Call your doctor immediately if you have trouble breathing or develop sores in your mouth or lips or a rash on your face or body.
