Glyburide/Metformin is a drug combination that contains Glyburide and Metformin as the key ingredients. It is usually used alongside a proper diet and exercise to control blood sugar levels, especially in people suffering from type 2 diabetes.
Glyburide is from the Sulfonylureas drug class and works by lowering the level of blood sugar. This happens by increasing production and release of the natural level of insulin in the body and decreasing the amount of sugar produced by the liver.
Metformin, on the other hand, reduces the amount of sugar made by the liver and amount absorbed by the stomach and intestines.
