Glipizide Drug Interactions

Oral Contraceptives
If glipizide and oral contraceptives (birth control pills) are taken together, this can make glipizide less effective, which may increase 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 glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping an oral contraceptive.
 
Phenothiazines
Taking glipizide with phenothiazines can make glipizide 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 glipizide dose, especially when starting or stopping a phenothiazine, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Phenytoin
If glipizide and phenytoin are combined, this can make glipizide less effective, 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 phenytoin, depending on your particular situation.
 
Probenecid
Taking glipizide with probenecid 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 probenecid.
 
Salicylates
Combining glipizide with salicylates can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). 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 a salicylate.
 
Sulfonamides
If glipizide is taken with a sulfonamide, 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 a sulfonamide, depending on your particular situation.
