Glipizide Drug Interactions

Diuretics
Combining glipizide with diuretics can make glipizide less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this interaction from occurring, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping a diuretic.
 
Estrogens
Taking glipizide with estrogens can make glipizide less effective, possibly 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 glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping an estrogen, depending on your particular situation.
 
Isoniazid
If glipizide and isoniazid are taken together, this can make glipizide less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this interaction, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping isoniazid.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors
If glipizide and monoamine oxidase inhibitors are combined, this 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 glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping an MAOI, depending on your particular situation.
 
Niacin
Taking glipizide with niacin can make glipizide less effective, possibly 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 glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping niacin.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Combining glipizide with NSAIDs 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 glipizide dose, especially when stopping or starting an NSAID.
