What if I am on another medication?
During the study you should continue any diabetes treatments prescribed by your doctor, such as tablet medications or insulin. If you develop low blood sugar (see information about side effects), the study team may suggest an adjustment to your diabetes medication. The study team would discuss this with your GP.
Warfarin – If you take warfarin (an anticoagulant, or blood thinner) you should arrange for your blood ‘INR’ or ‘warfarin level’ level to be checked after starting the study medication, or changing the dose.
Thyroxine – If you take thyroxine, you will need to arrange a blood test for your thyroid function within three months of starting the study medication, even if your levels were previously stable. You should then continue regular monitoring of your thyroid function with your doctor.
