Has your doctor given you some information dealing with the side effects of both medications? Are you having any issues-- side effects from either one? Can you call the doctor to let them know that you have some concerns related to both? What are your blood sugars during the day/evenings? Has the doctor put you on a low carb. high fat or low carb. high protein diet? Do they want you to count your carbs. for each meal/snack? Are you on any other medications?
