Estrogens
Taking Precose with estrogens can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with an estrogen, 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 an estrogen.
 
Insulin
Precose is approved for use with insulin. However, taking Precose while using insulin can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). If you have low blood sugar, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your dose of these medications.
 
Isoniazid
Taking Precose with isoniazid can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with isoniazid, 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 isoniazid.
 
Niacin (Nicotinic Acid, Niaspan, Niacor, Nicolar)
Taking Precose with niacin can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with niacin, 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 niacin.
 
Oral Contraceptives
Taking Precose with oral contraceptives (birth control pills) can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a birth control pill, 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 birth control pill.
