Brief answer....it doesn't have any effect on blood sugar levels
Detailed answer...
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
The most common side effects of flucloxacillin are skin rashes and gastrointestinal in nature.
It doesn't result in any change in blood sugar levels of a person.Neither it causes HYPERGLYCEMIA nor hypoglycemia.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
