Why can't diabetics take sleeping pills?
I have type 2 diabetes and needed to buy some sleeping pills to help me sleep 1 night a week after I finish night shift. The pharmacist told me I couldn't have any as I was diabetic. Does anyone know why. I dont take any medication for diabetes.

I am type 2 diabetic and take sleping pills, doctor sometimes give me a prescription for them but last week I spoke to the pharmacist and explained I was type 2 and take metformin and also have underactive thyroid and take thyroxin and she said it was ok to take sleeping pills, she gave me Boots own make called Slepeezee, I take 2/3 per week to help me sleep and have done for several months, I am just about to take one, Good Luck

If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, it’s very important that you learn all you can about your disease and the treatment options available to you. Learn here https://tr.im/diabetestreat
One way to approach diabetes is to use integrative holistic medicine, also known as alternative medicine, a medical specialty that focuses on caring for the whole person, treating and preventing disease, and empowering patients to create conditions for optimal health.

you doesn't need to take sleep pills to help you sleep . that is not good for the diatetes and also not good for the nerve endings
