Since glipizide-metformin lowers your blood sugar levels, it can sometimes result in blood sugar levels that are too low, or hypoglycemia. In order to avoid a hypoglycemic episode, you should try to avoid stress and alcohol, as well as eat regular meals. If your glucose levels drop too low and you suffer from a hypoglycemic episode, there are several things you can do to bring your levels back up. These include consuming a sugar source like orange juice, milk, candy or glucose gel, or using an injection of glucagon.
