Hello. I am new to this site. I need some helo trying to figure out what the side effects are are for the pills I am taking. About two weeks I started taking glyburide/metformin and januvia. At the time I had a cold so the doctor also prescribed some antibiotics and allergy pills. I have worked grave yard for 5 years and have never had trouble staying awake. When I started taking these pills I became very drowsy and fell alseep every night at work. I thought maybe the allergy pills or antibiotics had something to do with it. But I've stopped taking them and I'm still falling asleep at work. I've read where metformin can cause drowsiness. Since yesterday I have been lightheaded and feeling kind of dizzy. It doesn't last long and when I check my glucose level is not low or high. Does anyone know if these could be other side effects of the medications the doctor put me on? I am going to go back to the doctor and discuss what has happened. But I was just wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms while taking these medicines.
