In brief: Ask

It depends on your medication, some can effect blood glucose.
You should ask the lab you are going to.

In brief: Glucose test

a few medications can affect the glucose-hence best to get blood drawn first thing in the morning after a 8hr fast, then take pills-talk to your doctor about any specfic pills you may need to take in the morning
