Hello Pearl and thanks for the query
Your fasting sugar is high it should be around 110. But this a spot sugar cannot give us any idea about the medication. Get your HbA1c done and if it is less than 8 continue with the same medication and control your diet and lifestyle.
If it is more than 8 you have to revise your medication or if needed Insulin may be used for a short period of time. Amloz H or Amlodac H is used to control Blood pressure not sugar. In my opinion consult your doctor again and revise your Diabetic medications. We have a wide range of drugs to control diabetes.
