Precose Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Precose is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Taking Precose with calcium channel blockers can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a calcium channel blocker, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Precose dose -- especially when you are starting or stopping a calcium channel blocker.
 
Certain Decongestants
Taking Precose with certain decongestants can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking these medicines together, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Precose dose -- especially when starting or stopping decongestants. Check with your healthcare provider before taking any over-the-counter cough or cold products, as these medications often contain decongestants.
 
Corticosteroids
Taking Precose with corticosteroids can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a corticosteroid, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Precose dose -- especially when you are starting or stopping a corticosteroid.
 
Digestive Enzyme Replacements
Taking Precose with digestive enzymes can decrease the effectiveness of Precose. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Diuretics
Taking Precose with diuretics can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a diuretic, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Precose dose -- especially when you are starting or stopping a diuretic.
