have type 2 diabetes take glyburide for it have always kept it in control
Yes, I am a diabetic and have been on insulin with pretty good control unless I cheat. That being said I started on Pradaxa 3 weeks ago and in spite of watching my diet closely my blood sugars have spiked and are rarely under 200. More in the 250 range. Have not seen anything in the Pradaxa literature about it affecting blood sugar levels but was glad to see that others are having the same problem.
My type 2 diabetes was under control for the past 8 years my A1C in December 2011 was 6.4 then I started Pardaxa in December 2011 and my blood sugar when over the top. At my 3 month follow up in February 2012 my A1C was 11.6 and the only thing that changed was Pradaxa, now I'm on insulin and if my blood sugar don't go down I will go back on warfarin and the blood tests are alot better than my sugar being 350 up to HI.
I have had the same experience, since starting pradaxa my bs has gone over the top. I was a controlled diabetic before this for the last 5 years. Have you gotten any other response outside this forum?

Pradaxa and diabetes as its side effects have not been reported or listed, there are however no interactions between the 2 meds that you take.
Maybe talking to a specialist would solve your problems of increase in sugar levels.
Take care, best wishes!
