Default Hello from Seattle

My name is Arnold and I'm from Seattle. I'm a Type 2 diabetic. Has anyone experienced a bad reaction from taking an antihistamine and metformin? Thank you!

First, welcome!

Second - regarding the reaction you ask about ... not personally, but I'm sure many others will chime in.

I take Benedryl nearly every day for my rhinitis. Also use Rhinocort spray before bedtime so I can breathe during the night. Am Type 2 for 20 years and am on 1,000 Metformin am and pm. Last A1C was 5.5. Haven't noticed any side effects. By the way, I'm just north of you in Bellingham.

Welcome to Diabets Forum from another Seattle person. No I have not had
reaction from taking Metformin and Antihistamine. Are you talking about taking at the same time? What kind of reaction did you have? Just curious by the way.
Can you describe what happens.

That is not a reaction to Metformin and Antihistamine taken together as far as I can tell. It sounds like you needed to ingest a few carbs to bring your BG (Blood Sugar) up a notch or two. Once your body gets use to the new lower numbers 69 won't seem low at all. Others will be along to help you get adjusted to your new life with diabetes.
By the way, if you go low everytime you take Metformin and a antihistamine at the same time, try taking them at different times and see what happens.
