abilify
and 2 insulins:
lantus
apidra

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Firstly when you are on insulin you need to be careful if you plan to take pgx because it alters your sugar levels so safety is always not sure with the fact that it delays glucose release and absorption from the gut and reduces glycemic index of the food.
My advice would be to consult your diabetologist.
