I want to know is it safe to take Glimepiride while breastfeeding? Please suggest.

2 Doctors Answered
It is not known if glimepiride is excreted in breast milk like other sulfonylureas. Because of the risk of low blood sugar in the infant, it is recommended that glimepiride be discontinued in nursing mothers.
Its not very safe for lactating mother, better to take ayurvedic drug like hyponid from charak pharma.
