Well, now I'm on 850 mg twice a day of metformin and 2 mg of glimepiride once a day.
I was in the kitchen cooking when I felt weak, nauseated, and shaky all of a sudden. I sat down and took my blood sugar....93! shocked

I know that's normal before a meal but I've never been that low before. I guess I need to watch my symptoms closer incase it goes lower.

When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))

Yes, that's normal. Bodies may get used to high blood sugar and when the blood sugar goes down to normal levels, we can actually feel strange as if it's too low. You will get used to normal levels as long as your blood sugar stays at normal levels - and hopefully it does!

I'm glad that you're getting good results from the meds! yeah
