Examples of blood glucose-lowering pills are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glyburide</span> (Micronase, Diabeta, and Glynase) and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glipizide</span> (Glucotrol). Other drugs that can cause hypoglycemia include alcohol, quinine (used in treating malaria), pentamidine (used in treating Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia infection in patients with AIDS), and Vacor (rat poison).

I'm also diabetic, Metformin or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glyburide</span> did not work well with my system, Metformin caused me to have pancreatitis, I ended up in the hosptial. glipizide is working fantastic, but I'm not going to terrify someone from trying either meds. My mom has been on Metformin 35 yrs, never had a problem. Didn't work for me, but works for her. It's like, assistance at this forum is one way or no way at all. Sometimes all one needs is a sympathetic ear.
