Severe or life-threatening hyperglycaemia, severe liver or renal failure, type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis with or without coma, patients with severe infection or trauma.
Drug Precautions ::
Elderly; malnourished; mild to moderate renal and hepatic disorders. Impaired alertness. Avoid alcohol. Careful monitoring of blood-glucose concentration. Adrenocortical insufficiency. Changes in diet or prolonged exercise may also provoke hypoglycaemia. Increased risk of hypoglcaemia due to its long half-life. Avoid in severe hepatic impairment. Pregnancy, lactation.
Drug Side Effects ::
Hypoglycaemia; cholestatic jaundice; agranulocytosis; aplastic anaemia; haemolytic anaemia. Blood dyscrasias (reversible), liver dysfunction, hypoglycaemia, GI symptoms, allergic skin reactions.

Drug Mode of Action ::
Glibenclamide lowers blood glucose concentration principally by stimulating secretion of endogenous insulin from the pancreatic ?-cells. Hypoglycaemic action associated w/ short-term therapy appears to include reduction of basal hepatic glucose production and enhancement of peripheral insulin action at target sites.
Drug Interactions ::
Serum levels may be reduced by colesevelam. May increase hypoglycaemic effect w/ MAOIs, chloramphenicol, fluoroquinolones (e.g. ciprofloxacin), probenecid, NSAIDs, ACE inhibitors, fluoxetine, disopyramide, clarithromycin, salicylates, sulfonamides, ?-blockers. Increased serum levels w/ antifungal antibiotics (e.g. miconazole, fluconazole). May decrease hypoglycaemic effect w/ nonthiazide (e.g. furosemide) and thiazide diuretics, corticosteroids, phenothiazines, thyroid agents, oestrogens, OC, phenytoin, nicotinic acid, sympathomimetic agents, rifampicin, Ca channel blockers, isoniazid. Potentially Fatal: May increase hepatotoxic effect of bosentan.
