Chlorpropamide Drug Information

Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, a condition called diabetes mellitus (diabetes mellitus) develops. Chlorpropamide is one of the drugs (sulfonylureas) that is prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes.

People with diabetes need treatment to control their blood glucose levels; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people can control their blood sugar by making changes to their diet, but for others, medications are prescribed in addition to changing their diet. Chlorpropamide lowers blood sugar by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas;
