glimepiride tablets 1mg should 80 years take them?
the Dr. says when I turn 80 yrs old (4 months) he will stop prescribing Glimperide and put me on insulin. Does that make any sense? ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Yes, it actually does make sense. There have been cases of dangerously low blood sugar levels occurring in elderly patients taking oral antidiabetic medications.
