    Just started glimepiride today. Felt very nervous because nurse was saying i can experience hypo's sometimes. After 3 hours of taking the tablet my blood sugar went from 8.6 to 4.9, which made me more nervous. Need some support. Anyone else on glimepiride? Do you suffer from hypo's?

    I have just started Glimepiride this morning and 12:30pm I felt a bit clammy and shaky, I took my bloods and I was 2.8. I chewed a glucose tablet and ate an apple and started to feel better. I then had some lunch. I'm hoping that's a glitch and I will be ok.

    On it as well, but minimal dose. Had to argue with doc to halve the medication of this & Metformin, but don't seem to have experienced any massive lows. It was a vast improvement over glicizide, which is what I was on before. That drug nearly killed me with it's side effects.
