How Glimepiride + Metformin works

Glimepiride + Metformin falls under the antidiabetic agent category. Glimepiride is a sulfonylurea that lowers blood glucose by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas. Metformin is a biguanide that decreases glucose synthesis in the liver, delays glucose absorption from the intestines, and increases insulin sensitivity.
