He might be getting hypoglycemia episodes. If you have a glucometer at home, you should check his blood sugar at the time of symptoms. Below 70 mg/dl suggests hypoglycemia. In that case You need to reduce the medication and do SMBG charting as per your diabetologist's opinion. To treat hypoglycemia at home you can read my following article for details : https://www.practo.com/healthfeed/how-to-treat-hypoglycemia-at-home-2013/post
