Pregnancy

I'm 26 weeks pregnant. And will be having ogtt test around 29 weeks. I want to ask should I leave glucopahge before test? And how many days before? I'm taking glucopahge due to pcos.

salam and hello,
if the gluchopage was started by the consultant and if they are doing the test for the OGTT then ideally you should check with them, however if you have been taking the medication through out the pregnancy and your consultant is aware then you should carry it on as normal.
this medication is safe during pregnancy (“no evidence of risk in human pregnancy” according to the FDA). The medication has not been associated with an increased risk of birth defects or complications

I mean to say should I stop this medicine before this test and start again after the test?
