Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The dosage of glimepride is 1 to 2 mg orally once a day.

You can take upto 2mg.

The recommended starting dosage of glimepiride is 1 or 2 milligrams (mg), once a day with breakfast or first main meal.

If you have taken earlier 1 mg of glimepiride & still your blood sugar is high-you can take extra dosage of 1 mg. Total of 2 mg in a day.

Also let your doctor know what medications you are taking.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
