Exubera Drug Interactions

Certain Decongestants
If Exubera and certain decongestants are combined, this can make Exubera less effective, potentially increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this, 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 decongestant.
 
Clonidine
Taking Exubera with clonidine can increase or decrease your blood sugar levels. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose, especially when starting or stopping clonidine. Clonidine can also mask the symptoms of hypoglycemia, which may prevent you from feeling when your blood sugar drops too low.
 
Corticosteroids
Combining Exubera with corticosteroids can make Exubera less effective, possibly increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). Depending on your particular 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 a corticosteroid.
 
Danazol
If Exubera and danazol are taken together, this can make Exubera less effective, which may increase your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Exubera dose, especially when starting or stopping danazol, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Diuretics
Taking Exubera with diuretics can make Exubera less effective, potentially increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). 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 diuretic.
