Diabeta vs Micronase: What’s the Difference?

The GoodRx Pharmacist - February 06, 2014

As you may already know, there are two different forms of glyburide, regular nonmicronized glyburide (Micronase, Diabeta) and micronized glyburide (Glynase) that can’t be substituted for each other. So, what about Diabeta and Micronase? Both have glyburide as an active ingredient, both are used type 2 diabetes to improve glycemic control and lower blood sugar levels, and they come in the same dosages—however, they also can’t be substituted for each other. See More

Glynase vs Diabeta: What’s the Difference?

The GoodRx Pharmacist - January 30, 2014

First, let’s talk about what makes Glynase and Diabeta similar. Both of these medications are used in type 2 diabetes to improve glycemic control and lower blood sugar levels, both are 2nd generation drugs in the sulfonylurea class and work by telling the pancreas to release more insulin, and both have a form of glyburide as the active ingredient.

So, how does Glynase differ from Diabeta?
Glynase is micronized glyburide which has a different duration of action, absorption, and dosage than its nonmicronized counterpart, Diabeta or Micronase (regular glyburide). See More

Type 2 Diabetes: Oral Medication Basics

The GoodRx Pharmacist - December 31, 2013

In a non-diabetic person, insulin is released from the pancreas with each meal and it helps the body either use or store the glucose it gets from the food. Patients who have type I diabetes don’t produce insulin, and must inject themselves with insulin to mimic the body’s natural process.

Type II diabetics, on the other hand, still produce insulin but their bodies do not use it properly. Type II diabetics can be treated with oral medications, insulin, other injectables, or a combination of different medications. See More

Do Your Diabetes Meds Need an Upgrade?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - October 04, 2013

Older is not always better when it comes to diabetes medications. The class of diabetes medications called sulfonylureas consists of old standard drugs like glyburide, glipizide, and Amaryl (glimepiride), and they aren’t as good as the new stuff.

First-line therapy with sulfonylureas significantly increases the risk for death in patients with type 2 diabetes when compared with treatment with metformin, yet another new study shows. See More
