Just had a rather interesting development this morning. After getting a blood monitor and undertaking fasting tests first thing in the morning I've noticed higher readings than should be there. 8.6, 8.2, 9.2 are the last three. As I (also?) suffer from depression I thought it might be worthwhile checking the potential side effects of the drugs I've been on for the last year, Lofepramine, and sure enough there is a little sentence saying "changes in blood glucose levels". The only reason I've picked up on it is that i take 2 tablets in the evening so the drugs are still in my system in the morning. Sure enough the Mind website advises caution on taking these drugs if you're diabetic. I'm going to start testing before my evening meal as this should be the time when the level of drugs is at its lowest in my system to see where that leaves me. TBH just a little disappointed, although I should have done this myself!, that the fact I'm on a drug that can cause changes to blood sugar levels hasn't been noticed by 3 doctors and 2 diabetic nurses. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
