Metaglip Drug Interactions

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Taking Metaglip with an NSAID can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). To prevent this, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Metaglip dose, especially when stopping or starting an NSAID.
 
Oral Contraceptives
If Metaglip is combined with oral contraceptives (birth control pills), this can make Metaglip 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 Metaglip dose, especially when starting or stopping an oral contraceptive.
 
Phenothiazines
Taking Metaglip with phenothiazines can make Metaglip less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Metaglip dose, especially when starting or stopping a phenothiazine, depending on your particular situation.
 
Phenytoin
If Metaglip is combined with phenytoin, this can make Metaglip less effective, which may increase your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). To prevent this, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Metaglip dose, especially when starting or stopping phenytoin.
 
Probenecid
Taking Metaglip and probenecid together can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). As a result, you may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Metaglip dose, especially when starting or stopping probenecid.
 
Salicylates
If Metaglip is taken with salicylates, this 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 Metaglip dose, especially when starting or stopping a salicylate, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
