Glyburide Drug Interactions

Sulfonamides
Taking glyburide and sulfonamides together 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 glyburide dose, especially when starting or stopping a sulfonamide, depending on your particular situation.
 
Thyroid Medications
If glyburide and thyroid medications are combined, this can make glyburide 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 glyburide dose, especially when starting or stopping a thyroid medication, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Warfarin
Glyburide may interact with warfarin, although the full effects of this interaction are not known. Your may need to be monitored more frequently (and your warfarin dose may need to be adjusted) when starting or stopping glyburide.
