My blood sugar soared to 300 about 3hrs after takinbg the first does for an ear infection. Is this a known problem for this drug?
I am with the majority of you. On numerous occasions I have been placed on Augmentin. Trust me the infection was there quite sometime, and my glucose levels were within the normal range. Everytime I have taken Augmentin my glucose levels raise to extreme levels. So I personally decides, I was going to see fir myself. I took an augmentin, when I wasn't sick at all, and no infection. Well same outcome within a few hours my glucose levels were high. I think they need to do a study on this. There is several places that state no it can not be the augmentin, but it seems it does for alot of people. I guess not a direct answer just my experiences.
I did a Google search to find out if Augmentin was the cause of my blood sugar spike. Like many others, my blood sugars were in the mid to high 100s before the Augmentin regime. Shortly after taking my 1st dose of Augmentin, my blood sugar reading was 300. After 2 1/2 days taking Augmentin, my blood sugars are in the high 200s to 300. I'm going to stop taking Augmentin and ask my Dr. for a different antibiotic.
