Help Patients Stay Safe With Sulfonylureas
We're getting questions about the role of sulfonylureas (glipizide, glyburide, etc) in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Metformin is still the go-to drug for lowering blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. But a sulfonylurea is sometimes added when metformin isn't enough.
That's because sulfonylureas moderately improve blood sugar levels...and are often less expensive than other metformin add-ons.
