I couldn't manage to get my fasting #s down in the morning so my high risk jst started me on 2.5 mg of the glyberide before dinner and so far this morning my fasting # was good at 89 for the first time ....So now I am to scared to google glyberide and pregnancy cause I have anxiety and I don't wanna get myself sick ...So I figured I would just ask here

Yes it is completely safe for you and baby! Don't worry about it. It will make your life a bit less stressful with helping your numbers stay low. Good luck!

I was put on it yesterday too. It helped my number a little this morning. (98 vs. 110-115) From what I have read it is safe for pregnancy but they suggest you are off it two weeks before you deliver because they are unsure if it passes through breastmilk.

There is no known explanation for my losses.

My GD nurse informed me that studies have shown that the use of Glyburide can actually REDUCE the risk of developing Type 2 later on.

I was also concerned with taking it, so that made me feel much better

I'm taking it too. But it's not helping my fasting numbers of breakfast numbers.
