Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may already be aware of the interaction, but has determined that this is the best course of treatment for you and has taken appropriate precautions and is monitoring you closely for any potential complications. You should monitor your blood glucose frequently (for example, before and after meals and at bedtime), particularly when you first start treatment with pramlintide and whenever the dose is increased. Let your doctor know if you experience frequent episodes of hypoglycemia. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
