glucose monitor question

Do you have to have your dr. write a prescription for you in order to get a

monitor, test strips, lancet, etc..?

The reason i ask (and i might find out tomorrow from my dr anyway) is that i've

had a few brief periods of rapid heartbeat in the past couple of days (funny

since i couldn't even get my heart rate UP on the treadmill last week - LOL!) -

anyway, i'm noticing that it is only happening when i haven't eaten anything for

say 3 hours or so and frankly i'm usually not hungry. But if i will eat

something with good carbs in it and give my body roughly 1 hour after that, my

heartrate will come down - so i'm wondering if between doing SBD and taking the

glucophage (for insulin resistance) if there is a possibility of my just having

low blood sugar during these times and that causing the rapid heart rate?? So i

was thinking that i could just go and buy a monitor and actually test my blood

sugar, but didn't know if i could even do that w/o a prescription for it?

i'm seeing my dr tomorrow at 10:40
