Starlix Drug Interactions

Rifampin
Taking Starlix with rifampin can make Starlix less effective. You will probably need to monitor your blood sugar more closely and report any significant changes to your healthcare provider when starting or stopping rifampin.
  
Salicylates
If Starlix and salicylates are taken together, this can increase your risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Depending on your situation, 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 salicylate.
 
St. John's Wort
Taking Starlix with St. John's wort can make Starlix less effective. You will probably need to monitor your blood sugar more closely and report any significant changes to your healthcare provider when starting or stopping St. John's wort.
  
Thyroid Medications
If Starlix is combined with thyroid medications, 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 thyroid medication.
