Precose Drug Interactions

Phenothiazines
Taking Precose with phenothiazines can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a phenothiazine, 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 phenothiazine.
 
Phenytoin (Dilantin)
Taking Precose with phenytoin can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with phenytoin, 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 phenytoin.
 
Sulfonylureas
Precose is approved for use with sulfonylureas. However, taking Precose along with a sulfonylurea can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). If you have low blood sugar, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your doses of these medications.
 
Thyroid Medications
Taking Precose with thyroid medications can make Precose less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). If you are taking Precose with a thyroid medicine, 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 thyroid medication.
