About 10 days ago my BG started spinning badly out of control, like from before I started taking any meds at all, and the numbers had been in tight control, and I'm not eating differently, and I started feeling really awful, and I didn't know why. On speaking with my brilliant daughter she asked if my doctor had changed any of my meds at my last visit, about 2 weeks ago, and I said no, but I got to thinking this morning when I woke up (it's 4:30!) that yes, he did. He changed me from Prilosec to Nexium in an effort to get my stomach under better control!
On reading the side effects of Nexium, it says that some of the side effects I have are what they say I could, and another is that my other meds might not work as well (or at all!!). My blood pressure meds seem to be working fine, just the Diabetes meds are not.
So, in the process of shutting off all the acid in my stomach, have I caused my Diabetes meds not to be able to work properly?
I still have plenty of Prilosec left, and am going back to that, but I wondered if anyone had had any experiences with meds fighting each other and not working, or with Nexium in general?
I have plenty of Prilosec, and have gone back to that today, and we'll see if my numbers change over the next week, since it will take at least that long to get into the doctor anyway, so I might as well try on my own first! I can live with a little more acid and feel alot better than awful BG numbers and constantly feeling sick!
Thanks for any advice or opinions you can give :)
