Insulin Drug Interactions Explained
Any of the medications discussed in this article may increase the risk of low blood sugar when combined with insulin (or any other insulin medications). Therefore, it is a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before you take any of these medications with insulin. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you monitor your blood sugar levels more closely for a while to see if you need to adjust your insulin dosage. In some cases, an alternative medication that does not cause interactions may be recommended.
It is also important to check with your healthcare provider any time you stop taking any of the medications listed in this article, or any time your dose is adjusted. Again, you may need to monitor your blood sugar levels more closely for a while, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of insulin.
