Which medications can cause your blood sugar to rise?
blood sugar rising and have not eaten anything to cause such a jump. am takeing new meds.

any hormone can affect your blood sugar because insulin is a hormone

Steroids can cause them to go up. Higher blood sugars are associated with antibiotic use, but this is usually due to the infection and not the meds.

ms betty
steroids. ie..prednisone, solumedrol, cortisol ect...

Please look at this information.


sugar & carbohydrates ( jucy juice is a really good fast way to bring you up )

Anti-psychotics are notiorious for this, especially the phenothiazine class. Zyprexa has been shown to be especially effective in causing hyperglycemia.

One that I know of for sure is Seroquel an anti-depressant. It really raised mine a lot to the point I am pre-diabetic.

Avoid self medication & seek doctors help.

Steroids will raise your blood sugar like crazy, especially prednisone. All steroids raise blood sugar, since they increase insulin resistance, but glucocortoids like prednisone not only raise insulin resistance, but also cause your body to break down more stored sugar, creating a huge spike in blood sugar.


Cough medicine and cough drops always make my blood sugar sky rocket.

I'm not too sure about perscription pills, though.

When people get sick or have an infection that can cause weird flucuations in glucose levels.

There are lots of medicines out there that can cause your blood sugars to rise. What medicines are you taking?

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about what you are taking and find out if it could have an effect on your blood glucose levels.

Good luck and best wishes...

I am currently trying to work with my body to prevent having to take insulin. I have brought my sugar has come down by walking. What I found surprising was that starches turn to sugar. If you are just reducing sweets, I found out, think again. If you have rice, have brown rice, whole wheat instead of white flour and I have just laid off the potatoes for now. It seems hard at first, but, one you find out where those sneaky buggers hide, it helps a lot. Booze turns to sugar too, especially beer. Watching the diet and walking really help. The walking especially works because it is a way of burning up excess sugar. Good Luck, I have reduced my sugar from 8 down to 6.2 in three months. Go to your pharmacist and see if he will go over your husband's medications and advise you if any could cause a higher sugar reading. Ask him to put this information in to the computer to avoid any meds that aggravate his situation.
