To give a little background, she has marginally high cholesterol, had undergone Hysterectomy 4 years ago, got her appendix removed, had undergone a surgery for carpet tunnel and had been cured of Diabetes (HbA1C 6.5). For the above conditions, she takes Glimepiride and Metformin (Gluformin G1 Gorte), Sitagliptin phosphate (Januvia 100mg), Rosuvastatin (Crestor 20mg), Aspirin delayed (Ecosprin 150mg), Dosulepin (Prothiaden M).

GLYCOMET GP1 AND glimepiride 2MG
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed JANUMET XR 1000/50 MG 2 TABLETS in the morning before breakfast and 2mg GLIMEPIRIDE after breakfast. I was suggested bya doctor to take GLYCOMET GP1 twice daily instead of JANUMET XR. should I continue to take GLIMEPIRIDE because i read that GP1 contains 1 mg of GLIMEPIRIDE ## Hello Rao! How are you? Yes, you should double check with the doctor, but it seems that he meant to replace your other medications with the Glycomet GP1, since it contains Metformin and Glimepiride. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and low blood sugar. What are your normal sugar levels? Were they not in control with the Janumet XR?
