Exubera Drug Interactions

Exubera Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Exubera is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
ACE Inhibitors
Taking Exubera with ACE inhibitors can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose, especially when starting or stopping an ACE inhibitor, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Albuterol
Albuterol can make Exubera less effective. If you are using more (or less) albuterol than usual, your blood sugar may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose. If you are taking albuterol and Exubera at the same time, take the albuterol first.
 
Alcohol
Drinking alcohol while taking Exubera can either raise or lower your blood sugar. Avoid binge drinking, and test your blood glucose often if you are drinking alcohol while taking the drug.
 
Atypical Antipsychotics
Combining Exubera with atypical antipsychotics can make Exubera less effective, which may increase your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). Depending on your situation, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose, especially when starting or stopping an atypical antipsychotic.
 
Beta Blockers
If Exubera is taken with a beta blocker, this can increase or decrease your blood sugar. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose, especially when starting or stopping a beta blocker. In addition, beta blockers can mask the symptoms of hypoglycemia, preventing you from feeling when your blood sugar drops too low.
