medication forgot to take
Hi there
I am currently on Glaucophage 50. My dosage is 1 morning & night.
I have forgotten to take the eveing tablet for the past three days. I feel fine but the puzzle is that my sugar readings have been 6,6.2& 5.8 at the morning reading. Why? Is this normal?
Also what is the affect that fluoxitine has on my glaucophage?
Im currently on 1 every day & 2 every second day

Dear Diabetic

Thank you for visiting

Glaucophage has a long working duration. You will therefore, not see a drastic elevation in your early morning suger reading. Please try to remember to take your medication, in order to control your diabetes succesfully.

There are no interactions between Fluoxetine and Glucophage.

Kind regards
