You can do a glucose done any time but if you want to see if it has returned to normal then I would repeat it after 4-6 weeks and under exactly the same conditions as the one you did on the meds (time of day, menses, same diet two weeks before.. To properly test you should do a formal oral glucose tolerance test. (OGTT).
