Effects Of Long-term Use Of Glibenclamide?
Hello, I want to ask what are the effects of using glibenclamide if you don’t use it for a long time. Thank you,
Glibenclamide is one of the drugs used to regulate blood sugar levels in diabetics which belongs to the sulfonylurea group. This drug works by stimulating the pancreas to produce the hormone insulin, which is used to metabolize glucose. As diabetes treatment lasts long term, it is also important to pay attention to the side effects caused by glibenclamide as one of the drugs most often used in the treatment of diabetes. The short-term side effects of this treatment can certainly cause blood sugar levels to drop to the point that it can trigger a loss of consciousness. In the long term glibenclamide can cause obesity, and can damage the liver slowly, as well as decrease the number of blood cells. However, because this drug is intended for long-term consumption, its use usually rarely causes these side effects, as long as its use is under the supervision of a doctor. We recommend that those who take glibenclamide always have regular check-ups with their doctor to see the effectiveness and side effects. Here we attach an article about glibenclamide. Hope it is useful.
