Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works.  Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding. You may be asked for regular monitoring of blood sugar levels, kidney function and level of growth hormone before and during the treatment.
