i worry about this, the zybrexa does help, but there times when my blood sugar gets low,  my mom is diabetic and i told her my symptoms and she said that what she did if her blood sugar was low, i know that this is a possible side affect of the drug, but what else can i take, thats like it , hopefully something cheaper, i'm in no way knocking this medicine, because people have different reactions, but i don't need another illness to occur i'm paying enough without insurance, they checked me for diabetes and i was normal before the medicine.
i take lexapro 20mg, zybrexa,  and a beta blocker

I personally would talk to your physician about this

My ex had his BSL go thru the roof after a specialist put him on Prednisone

I am sure there are other meds out there that may not cause this with you and I agree this med does work great for many.........not for all

Dear Machelle,

Good Morning.  I agree with Lyn that your physician and you need to talk about this.  Do you know what your blood sugar has been?

You may be looking at the wrong  med; use of medications like beta-blockers may cause hypoglycemia.

Please follow up with your physician. (((((HUGS))))))
