Avandaryl is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help improve blood glucose control in adults with type 2 diabetes. Avandaryl is considered an adjunct treatment to diet and exercise.

Avandaryl is a combination drug composed of the drugs Rosiglitazone, the active ingredient in Avandia, and Glimepiride, the active ingredient in Amaryl. Rosiglitazone is a thiazolidinedione, also known as a glitazone. Rosiglitazone is believed to work by decreasing the amount of glucose released by the liver and making insulin more effective in muscle and fat tissues. Glimepiride is a sulfonylurea. Glimepiride is believed to work by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas.
