I found out that taking cipro can affect your BSL .I am on cipro for a UTI and taking my Metformin too and it caused my sugar to drop. So I can't take my metformin while taking my antibiotic.I am still learning so much about diabetes.

You can check out drug interactions on this website:
You just type in what drugs you are taking and it will give you the interactions. Also gives food interactions which a lot of people don't realize is possible.

This is a very good example as to make sure you let any doctor you see know what medications you are on. (Even over the counter meds such as Tylenol, etc.) There might be a time, heaven for bid, that you end up in the ER, and your regular doctor is not available. The ER staff needs to know this information. I carry a list of my medications I take in my wallet for just such cases. Just a suggestion. Also, if you change meds, make sure your list is updated.
