On this podcast episode, I discuss glimepiride pharmacology, adverse effects, hypoglycemia symptoms, and drug interactions.

CYP2C9 is an important enzyme in the breakdown of glimepiride. I discuss a few drugs that can cause interactions via this enzyme.

Renal function is important to consider with glimepiride. The active metabolites are cleared by the kidney and can accumulate in CKD.

Hypoglycemia and weight gain are problematic adverse effects of this medication and are the primary reasons it has fallen out of favor.
