Hi, I am CF, post dbl lung & kidney transplants, and taking lipitor (5mgQD) for prevention of chronic rejection, using its anti-inflammatory effects. I take it at night (HS). Breakfast sugars, taking 2 mg Prednisone, are harder to control & rise faster than remainder of day. Does lipitor have effects on the liver which impact the liver's release of glucogen?
This is without taking lexapro, advair, albuterol or other meds (excepting 2 mg prednisone) which would affect blood sugar. I asked about the lexapro previously ... still looking for an anti-depressive, SSRI or other, without adverse diabetic effects (to counter prograf-induced depression). Thank you for any insights.
