Applies to:ofloxacin and metformin
Medications like ofloxacin can sometimes affect blood glucose levels. Both hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) and, less frequently, hyperglycemia (high blood glucose) have been reported. Severe cases of hypoglycemia have resulted in coma and even death. Your blood glucose should be closely monitored during treatment with ofloxacin so that your diabetic regimen may be adjusted, if needed. Let your doctor know if you experience hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, or if you notice a loss of blood glucose control. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nervousness, confusion, tremor, nausea, hunger, weakness, perspiration, palpitation, and rapid heartbeat. Symptoms of hyperglycemia may include increased thirst, increased hunger, and increased urination. 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.
