When should I call my doctor if I am taking Glyset?

If you're taking Glyset (miglitol) to help treat diabetes, you should contact your doctor right away if you notice signs that your blood sugar levels have dropped too low. Call your doctor if you:
  • feel shaky, dizzy, nervous or weak
  • start sweating
  • become numb around your mouth
  • have blurred vision
  • experience mood changes
  • notice your skin is pale
  • feel unusually hungry
  • notice your skin is pale
  • start feeling clumsy or jerky
Get medical help right away if you develop signs of extreme hypoglycemia, including confusion, seizures and loss of consciousness. It's important that you wear a diabetic ID bracelet in case you aren't able to call or go for help yourself.
