I am new to this site and I am looking for some information on the meds I am currently taking. My blood sugar levels are all over the chart. I am taking Glyburide and metformin. I take a dose of meds at dinner. Every morning my sugar is high, even if it was within a good range before going to bed.This has been a point of real frustration. Ok at bedtime, high in the morning!! In the morning I take glyburide, 4 mg. Sugar stays high until midday , it goes down a little but not enough, by then I am starving and eat and up it goes.
Questions are how long does it take for meds to have effect. Any other meds I could try? Low sugars for me are 89 etc. I get confused and shaky at that level. Sometimes I take meds, eat poorly , pasta etc and have a low sugar! I cant figure it out. My doc just seems to know the basics. The effect of the meds seems to be very erratic. I am at the point now where I go from watching what I eat with no success, to screw it and eat what I want. And the blood sugars levels are basically the same. Overall crappy.
