Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I can understand your concern.
I would recommend to stop taking nateglinid as it seems not appropriate for you.
Before recommending to restart glimepirid it would be necessary to know the HbA1c level before changing the therapy.
Do not hesitate to report it.
Will be a pleasure to help you further.
Kind regards,
