Hello otish,
Thanks for posting your query.
You should monitor blood sugar twice a day.
Taking phenergan is okay, if it is not helping then she should take antacids like Rabeprazole+domperidone once a day and can add on tablet domperidone 10mg additionally up to three times a day.
The diabetes medicines doses should be reduced to half till the patient accepts orally well.
Till then give her liquid feeds to ensure nutrition and hydration.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have any follow up queries or doubts, you can forward them for me, and I shall be glad to help you.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
