Spriggy,

I can't say for sure, but I will just put this out there for you to raise with you doctor. It may have had something to do with the instability of your blood sugar. You had done your fasting test, during which you had to drink a sugary drink (carbohyrate), you came home and had a piece of toast (more carbs), then you went to sleep (during which time, I would imagine that your blood sugar dropped even more). The drink and the toast would like have had your blood sugar peaking rapidly then dropping (since carbs are metabolized very quickly AFAIK). In retrospect, you probably would have been better off having a protein snack, or even a protein/carb (toast with peanut butter) snack, before going for your nap. I would suggest that you raise what happened with your doctor either before or when you get the results of the GTT. Therefore, it may not have had anything to do with the Klonopin at all.

Take care of yourself Spriggy.

Tamara
