Taking glycomet gp, aztor 10, fasting sugar level reduced but have easy tiredness. Is it due to medicines?

I have been taking glycomet gp1 500mg once everyday for sugar and aztor10 for cholostrol last 15 days. My fasting sugar level came down to 101 from 204 within this period. I really go tired often, I dont know whether its because of the medicine. Can I reduce the dosage to 250mg. Please advise me the right dosage and whether I need to take any vitamin supplement with medicine. My age 42, height 174cm and weight 86kg. Thankyou

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The tiredness may be from metformin - but you are taking a low dose of 500 mg (Maximum is 3 grams ). But it will settle down with time.. It is a good drug - especially for the overweight.
Statin (astor) can also do this, especially muscle pain
Low sugar can be - but it is sudden and short.

In general, the prescription is proper / The control is excellent.
It may settle down with time
You must reduce your weight - to 70 kg - may be then you may not require medicines for long time.

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
