Glyburide Reviews

Too Low

Pros: Worked for years

Cons: Dr. had to take me off because BS became too low.

Overall: For years I took glyburide and metformin. This year my BS started getting too low, causing problems. My Dr. took me off and now I am doing ok.

Pros: Make my sugar to low. It is a sulfa drug and I am highly allergic to sulfa drugs.

Cons: It keeps your sugar low

Overall: Had to go to the ER room. Got my medicine. It took time for the rash and hot flashes to go away and the cough that I had from this medicine.
