Hello i am new here
Deb living in Vancouver BC
Long history of depression and anxiety, other medical problems including high blood pressure and high choleserol, now diagnosed pre-diabetic. My family doctor and my psychiatrist don't seem to be talking to each other. I am on a mess of pills and trying to get a grip on my blood glucose readings - recent A1c was 5.5 which is brilliant but my morning and after meal readings are still in the pre-diabetic range.
would love to hear from anyone who is on any of the following medications and having issues with higher than normal blood sugar readings? and any suggestions if you have any:
-imipramine 100mg/day taken at bedtime, on since 1994
-trazadone 100mg/day taken at bedtime, on since mid 2006
-remeron 30mg/day taken at bedtime, since Mar 2007
-risperidone (for anxiety) 0.5mg/day taken am, since Mar 2007
I am also on lipitor and diovan and have a med review next monday with my family doctor and due to lifestylye changes incl strict diet and exercise (40+lb weight loss since last spring) hope to eliminate those as they seem to be affecting my blood sugar as well...
thanks in advance
