How it works
The primary mechanism of action of glimepiride in lowering blood glucose is by stimulating pancreatic beta cells to produce more insulin and induce increased activity of peripheral insulin intracellular receptor. However, as with other sulfonylureas, the mechanism by which glimepiride lowers blood glucose during long-term administration has not been clearly established.
