... 2. I do not take any other drugs, but I do take a lot of herbs: Cinnimon, Gluco-support and supplements: Vitamins: a,b,c,d,e, Milk Thistle, Omega III, Alpha Lipid Acid. My blood sugar usually run from 180 - 230 when it is out of control.. Is Starlix safe? My Dr. said we will try this and see if it helps. He also told me to take it with my meal... I am now reading it should be taken before my meal... I just want to be safe. Please help!
