One of the side effects with Byetta (exenatide) is its effect on blood sugar levels. In general, Byetta does not cause blood sugar levels to drop too low (hypoglycemia) when used by itself, although using Byetta with other diabetes drug can increase the risk of low blood sugar. It is also possible for blood sugar to go too high (hyperglycemia) in people taking Byetta.
