What is Diabeta, and What Does it Treat?
Diabeta is the name brand for glyburide, a sulfonylurea. Sulfonylureas are medications used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes that lower your blood sugar by causing your body to release insulin. Diabeta is best used alongside a diet and exercise program to help control your blood sugar levels.
Diabeta is typically taken once a day, with breakfast or your first meal of the day. Patients on higher doses of Diabeta may be asked to take it twice a day. Diabeta is available as 1.25, 2.5, and 5 mg tablets. Your dosage will vary based on your needs and may be anywhere from 1.25 to 20 mg per day.
Always take Diabeta exactly as your doctor prescribed it to reduce the chances of experiencing side effects or complications.
