Diabetes Home > Glucagon Drug Interactions

Warfarin
There is some evidence that high doses of glucagon may increase the risk of bleeding in people taking warfarin. This is most likely to be a concern when glucagon is used to treat overdoses with beta blockers or calcium channel blockers, since such treatment usually involves very high doses of glucagon.
 

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all drug interactions with glucagon were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
