Questions Related to Tenepride

Fasting sugar was 340 on 5/12/16. Took one tablet of GLX XR 60mg before breakfast and one tablet of Tenepride 20mg before dinner. Continued for one month. Blood sugar level dropped to BFS 76 and PP 98. Next GLX XR 60mg was reduced to half a tablet and Tenepride 20 mg continued with one tablet. Blood sugar level was further reduced to BFS 72 and PP 96. My body weight, which was about 65 kg, came down to 56 kg. In between, I had a blood sugar drop and felt dizzy,my vision blurred and was about to faint. Quick intake of sugar saved the day. I followed a strict diet control but now relaxed a bit. My question is should I continue with the medicine or lower the doze or abstain from medicine
