Q. Can Cernos have any harmful effect if I am a diabetic?

Cernos may decrease blood glucose levels, and therefore, the dose of antidiabetic medicines should be reduced. Consult your doctor for advice.

Q. Will there be a problem if I am taking warfarin and have started Cernos?

You should get blood tests done more frequently for checking your bleeding time (time taken to stop bleeding) when you are taking warfarin along with Cernos, especially when starting and stopping Cernos. Talk to your doctor for advice.
