Starlix Drug Interactions

Starlix Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Starlix is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Amiodarone
Taking Starlix with amiodarone 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 Starlix dose.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking Starlix with beta blockers 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 Starlix dose, especially when starting or stopping a beta blocker.
 
Certain Decongestants
Combining Starlix with certain decongestants can make Starlix less effective, potentially 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 Starlix dose, especially when starting or stopping decongestants. Decongestants are in many over-the-counter cough and cold products, so check with your healthcare provider before taking any of them.
 
Corticosteroids
If Starlix and corticosteroids are taken together, this can make Starlix 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 Starlix dose, especially when starting or stopping a corticosteroid, to prevent this interaction from occurring.
