There are a number of different medications available to people with diabetes, all of which work in a variety of different ways. Not all treatments are suitable for everyone, so don’t be disheartened if you find yourself needing to change or stop certain medications. Your GP or healthcare professional can help you find a medication that’s best for your individual needs.
You should always check the patient information leaflet (PIL) supplied with your medication to see which side effects you might experience. However, don't be put off by the list as you may not experience any at all.
If you do experience side effects, speak to your doctor as there may be an alternative medication that you could try instead. If you experience any severe side effects or reactions, make sure you seek medical attention straight away.
