Micronase 2,5 mg tablets contains glyburide, which lowers glucose levels in the blood. It belongs to the diabetic drugs of sulfonylureas class. Insulin is produced in the pancreas and reduces synthesis of glucose by the liver and stimulates cells in the body to remove glucose from the blood. Type 2 diabetes occurs in the patients whose body either does not produce enough insulin or fails to use insulin properly. Glucose levels produced by the liver increase and pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to make the cells resistant to it to work properly. Micronase stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin.
Initial dose of Micronase is 2.5-5 mg daily. The maximum dose is 1.25-20 mg a day. Take Micronase with the first main meal of the day.
