From this study (2 months ago):
Never had hypo/hyperglycemia. Experienced sweating and shaking. BS 68
From this study (3 months ago):
I tested him in middle of night Nevada I expected his blood glucose to be high as a result of a snack that wasn't covered with dose of insulin. His bg was 46. This is first day on stratera. His Diabetes is well managed and no logical explanation for this kind of low so I thought perhaps the new strattera medication caused it.
