Hello. I am taking metformin Er 2000mg daily. Doc just prescribed glyburide 5mg once daily, additionally. The side effects for this one little 5mg green pill are just awful! I shake, get weak (low blood sugar), sweat, heart palpitations etc. Although I take it with food, I have very slow digestion so it can take up to 3-4 hours to hit me. I end up eating a sweet something to help the side effects. Which is ridiculous! My question is: how can a 5mg pill affect me so harshly? Eating sugar to counteract it is defeating the point! My average blood sugar is over 200. I am cutting out sugar, eating more protein , taking my meds. Metformin Er gives me no problems, but the normal metformin upset my tummy.

Hello, Sharon! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the problem that you've been having.

Some people are just very sensitive to the effects of some drugs and it seems that you are very sensitive to the effects of the Glyburide. Along with nausea, flatulence and diarrhea, it has been known to cause hypoglycemia in some people that take it.

Have you consulted your doctor? You may need to actually lower your dosage of Metformin, since adding the Glyburide.
