Metaglip Drug Interactions

Metaglip drug interactions with other medications, such as beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, and oral contraceptives, can cause the body to metabolize the medications differently than intended and may lead to problems. For example, these interactions can increase your risk of side effects or increase your chance of high blood sugar. If Metaglip drug interactions are a concern, your healthcare provider may adjust your doses.
